Jenna Russell and Bradley Walsh to star in Peter Pan at the Adelphi Theatre
Entertainment stalwart and star of stage and screen, Bradley Walsh (Coronation Street, Law and Order UK, The Chase), will take to the stage to perform the iconic role of Captain Hook. Also announced, Olivier Award-winning actress Jenna Russell (Call The Midwife, Songs For A New World, Soho Cinders) will take on the role of Mrs Darling.
Bradley Walsh is a huge talent whose versatility is showcased across many genres of entertainment. It is an absolute thrill to have him join Peter Pan in Concert as Captain Hook. Jenna Russell is one of the UK’s finest leading ladies and together with Bradley makes the standard of talent in Peter Pan exceptional”.
Based on J. M. Barrie’s classic, the production features music and lyrics by the Olivier Award-winning writing duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Honk!, Mary Poppins, Betty Blue Eyes, Soho Cinders) and a book by the late Willis Hall.
Join Peter and the Darling children as they travel to a land full of imagination and possibility featuring the mischievous Lost Boys and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook.
Stiles and Drewe’s “timeless and tuneful score” (Independent) combines adventure, comedy and a real emotional punch. With further cast names to be announced shortly, the show will be sprinkled with a new dose of fairy dust, sure to capture the hearts and minds of anyone who refuses to grow up.
Join Peter Pan as he flies towards the second star to the right, and by morning you’ll be transported to the magical Never Land where there are “no tedious distances between one adventure and the next”.
