A star-studded line-up will take on J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan this Christmas. The audio play will be available to download from 20 December, raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Adapted by Shaun McKenna, this production of Peter Pan will be a feminist take on the original tale, following the Darling children as they fly off to Neverland with Peter Pan. Charlie Cameron will play the titular character, with patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital lending their voices to roles.

The cast includes Olivier Award-winning stars, including Kenneth Branagh, Bertie Carvel, Sharon D. Clarke and Clive Rowe. The line-up includes Bobby Beynon, Norman Bowman, Olivia Colman, Jason Flemyng, Craig Lauzon, Sera-Lys McArthur, Katie Moore, George Neilly, Steffan Rhodri, Ben Starr, Zubin Varla and Matthew Woodyatt.

Liz Tait, Director of Fundraising at GOSH Charity said: "We are so grateful to the many stars who lent their voices to this creative audio adaptation of the timeless story of Peter Pan, alongside children and young people from the hospital whose contribution helped bring this tale to life in such a unique way."

Peter Pan is available to listen to from 20 December.
