THE 'croc' is ticking to this year's Theatre Severn's pantomime spectacular!

The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan will run from Wednesday, December 1, with more than 25,000 tickets already snapped up by fans.

The show is written by Telford-born Paul Hendy and produced by Evolution, the creative team which has been producing pantomimes at Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury since 2011.

Paul said: "After such a challenging year, we all need something to cheer us up and The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan promises to be our funniest and most spectacular pantomime yet.

"We can't wait to bring some fun, magic, and laughter back to Shrewsbury this Christmas.

"The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan will be the perfect festive treat for all your family, and we cannot wait to get started.

"Have you booked your tickets yet – the croc is ticking!"

Brad Fitt returns to direct the show and star in his 10th season at Theatre Severn in the role of Mrs Smee.

He will reunite with Shropshire legend and former BBC Radio Shropshire presenter Eric Smith, who will be playing Eric The Pirate in what we will be his 18th Shrewsbury pantomime.

Victoria McCabe, who has previously starred in Mother Goose (2018) and Aladdin (2019), returns in the role of Elizabeth Darling.

Harry Winchester and Phil Stewart will play the roles of Peter Pan and Captain Hook, while Katy Dean and Millie Davies make their debuts at the venue in the roles of Mrs Darling and Tinkerbell.

David Jack, theatre services manager, said: "We're delighted to finally be able to share another magical pantomime season with everyone again.

"We've been so grateful for the understanding and support we have received following last year's postponement.

"The Pantomime adventures of Peter Pan will feature everything you've come to know and love about Theatre Severn pantomimes, and more."

Peter Pan runs until Monday, January 3.
