Destination Neverland - A sneak peek of Peter and Wendy learning to fly

Destination Neverland - A sneak peek of Peter and Wendy learning to fly

8 November 2019 Press release

“With every Christmas show we aim to create a visual ‘wow’ moment for the audience when they enter the auditorium. For Oliver Twist it was having the huge wooden bridge overhead as part of the set and this year we are bringing extra magic for the festive period. Working with silks and circus skills gives us freedom to embrace the theatricality of the act of flying, we aren’t trying to hide the support wires – they instead become part of the performance. The combination of this striking imagery along with a beautiful set design, an enchanting score and an insanely talented cast means that the whole family are in for a real treat this Christmas.” - Mark Babych, Artistic Director of Hull Truck Theatre
