Mercury Theatre has announced as its new pantomime for 2024.

Running 23 November 2024 – 19 January 2025, the pantomime will be written by Andrew Pollard and directed by and starring “the best Dame in the country” (British Theatre) Antony Stuart-Hicks as Mrs Smee.

Mercury pantomime legend, Dale Superville (recently announced in the West End cast of Fawlty Towers) also returns as Smee.

Stuart-Hicks said, “Join us for Colchester’s favourite pantomime this Christmas as Neverland bursts to life in a spectacular production that’s fun for the whole family. The New Adventures of Peter Pan promises to be an awe-inspiring spectacle with the perfect blend of breath-taking sets & costumes, mind-blowing flying and effects, side-splitting comedy and of course the usual warning applies… I will very much be in it!”

There will be a range of accessible shows throughout the run including relaxed, audio described, captioned and BSL interpreted performances. The theatre will also bring back their popular 18+ adults only performances with seven shows held in January.
