National Theatre's Peter Pan to be revived at Troubadour White City
Directed by Sally Cookson, the production was first seen at Bristol Old Vic before opening at the National in 2016, and features aerial acrobatics and a live band on stage to tell the story of ‘the Boy Who Never Grew Up’.
Cookson’s production, which ran in the Olivier Theatre, starred Paul Hilton as the titular character. Casting for the Troubadour White City Theatre revival is yet to be announced.
The production features designs by Michael Vale, dramaturgy by Mike Akers, lighting by Aideen Malone, and sound by Dominic Bilkey.
The new theatre is situated on the site of the old BBC Media Village in White City, and Peter Pan is scheduled to be the first theatre production at the venue, alongside a summer programme of children’s shows across its two spaces.
Troubadour has also recently announced a new theatre at Wembley Park, which will open this summer with Dinosaur Live followed by another revival of a National Theatre show, War Horse.
