I thoroughly enjoyed Peter Pan Goes Wrong and can’t recommend it enough. It’s ridiculously funny, cleverly structured and the hard work of the cast and production crew certainly pays off. It’s definitely worth seeing.

Each am-dram stereotype is covered in this tour de force of coarse acting…this is a show that provides many belly laughs for the whole family


A roller coaster ride of manic hilarity… To deliberately create something so seriously bad you have to be exceptionally good. And that’s the irony. This production is. Every company’s worst nightmare comes true in this dream of a show.

By the end the audience – myself included – were paralytic with laughter. Do yourself a favour: this is a must see – but bring tissues, you’ll need them.

Joy was pretty much unconfined, in one of the most technically challenging and funniest shows of Christmas. Some of that stuff must really hurt. But down in the stalls, we’re very, very happy.


It really is a gem and has the feel good factor, ideal for this time of year, of repeatedly jumping back into your mind with an ‘oh that was funny too’ moment. Go and see it.


Technically challenging and hilariously funny. We were in tears of laughter.


A brilliantly conceived and hysterical world. This is a comic creation dripping with ideas, all made to look so effortless. The profuse big guffaws land on everyone.


Hilarious confusion. The physical comedy really tickles the ribs.


“One of the best shows I’ve ever seen” as quoted by my overjoyed 10 yr old daughter. A must see. I can see us talking about it for a long time to come.


A total triumph. The needle on the laughometer is overworked to breaking point. I liked this show so much, I’m determined to see it again.


This is a very funny, well timed and expertly considered production and performance. I laughed, applauded, shouted out and joined in (appropriately of course!). The staging was fantastic and all the props worked when they were supposed to (or not as the case may be) and the laughs kept coming as the players hit their timings perfectly.

Too many of the cast to mention individually, but they all played their parts to hilarious perfection. Just hope they manage to survive the extended tour they are just beginning. Get a ticket if you can—it’s great entertainment and not to be missed.

Who does one praise? Well, it’s not easy to do everything wrong night after night so everyone played their part but look out for Naomi Sheldon, who apart from Mrs Darling plays no less than four other characters, Alex Bartram as Peter Pan and Leonie Hill as the indomitable Wendy. But, as I said, they’re all good so go and have a good laugh.
