We are delighted to announce that our Christmas show for 2023 will be family favourite Peter Pan The Musical. The production will be flying into Birmingham on Tuesday 5 December and will run until Sunday 31 December. This will mark the eighth Christmas production that we have produced alongside the BOA Group.
This musical adventure follows the Darling children, Wendy, John, and little Michael as they embark on a voyage to Neverland with Peter Pan.
