As usual a star-studded cast will be bringing the tale to the stage this year, led by comedian, actor and part-time singing hedgehog Jason Manford who will play Captain Hook in his panto debut.

Jason Manford said “I’ve been going to panto since I was a kid and now experience the magic with my own children. So to make my debut and be part of this year’s Manchester pantomime feels like a huge honour.

“I’m nervous of course, and slightly worried about how a 40-year-old out of shape father of six is going to play Peter Pan, what with all the flying and sword fighting but I’ll give it my best shot…what’s that? Ohhhh! I’m playing Hook. Right, well that certainly makes more sense! Can’t wait.”

Michael Harrison, Chief Executive of Crossroads Pantomimes, added: “Jason is without question one of the most in-demand comics of the moment and I’m absolutely thrilled to have his phenomenal talents leading our Manchester Opera House panto this Christmas.”

Joining Jason will be returning Manchester panto favourite Ben Nickless as Smee with further casting to be announced.

A teaser of the show reads: “With amazing special effects, stunning sets, beautiful costumes and barrel-loads of laughter, The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan will take your whole family on a swashbuckling trip to Neverland like never before!”

Peter Pan plays at Manchester Opera House from 10 December 2022 until 31 December 2022.
