Peter Pan Casting Announcement
By Open Air Theatre
Our 2018 season opens with Peter Pan, a production that we have wanted to revisit since we first presented it in 2015. The show was nominated for the Olivier Award for Best Entertainment and Family and so, with the creative team reassembled, we are excited to return to Never Land to rediscover its potential with our 2018 cast.
Sam Angell will take flight in the title role of Pan, with Dennis Herdman his adversary, Captain Hook. Sam debuted as Billy Elliot in 2007. Following graduation from LAMDA, recent credits include the short film Murder Myster, Josh in number 40 and the musical Scandinavian Heart. He is also a co-founder of the London based theatre company, ‘From The Gut’. Dennis’ recent credits include Around the World in 80 Days (UK Tour), The Lounge (Soho Theatre), The Winter’s Tale, Pericles and The Oresteia (Shakespeare’s Globe) and A Mad World My Master (RSC/ETT).
The roles of Wendy, John and Michael are played by Cora Kirk (most recently playing Lucy in The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe at West Yorkshire Playhouse), Theo Cowan (who previously appeared in our production of Lord of the Flies) and Omari Douglas (most recently seen in Five Guys Named Moe and, in 2016, our production of Jesus Christ Superstar). Following her work with Gyre & Gimble on Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons A Reimagining (Sam Wanamaker) and the UK Tour of Running Wild, Elisa De Grey will play/puppeteer the role of Tinker Bell.
