This festive season the Victoria Theatre will be home to the spectacular family pantomime Peter Pan and audiences will delighted to hear that Halifax’s favourite comic, Neil Hurst, will be returning for his eighth year.

Neil says :“The Victoria Theatre is my second home so I am delighted to back there again this Christmas and can’t wait to play Smee for the first time.”

Neil is a well known face in Halifax. As well as having made over 500 appearances on the Victoria Theatre stage he is an ambassador for Overgate Hospice in Elland.

So far this year Neil has appeared in Two at the Victoria Theatre and can currently be seen on our screens in the Your Move commercial.

Later this year he will be directing the musicals Love Story and Rock of Ages.

Imagine Theatre, which produces the pantomime at the Victoria Theatre, added Peter Pan to its repertoire for the first time in 2015 and is looking forward to putting the show on in Halifax this year.

Managing Director of Imagine Theatre, Steve Boden says: “Peter Pan was a panto I had wanted to do for a long time and it proved to be hugely popular when we performed it in Inverness.

“So we decided that it was the perfect panto for Halifax this year.

“It will have all of the hallmarks of a traditional Victoria Theatre panto – fabulous sets and costumes, great musical numbers and hilarious slapstick as well as some spectacular flying scenes.”

Peter Pan runs from Saturday December 10 until Monday, January 2, 2017.
