About EXHIBITION: Peter Pan on Ice
Peter Pan on Ice is the skating sensation flying into the National Sports Arena, Crystal Palace from 9 November – 3 December, sprinkling fairy dust over the capital city and conjuring that all-important festive magic.
Based on J. M. Barrie’s timeless classic and featuring guest voiceovers from some of the UK’s favourite celebrities, this thrilling production will take you on a journey of wonder and excitement into the magical world of Neverland. In an exhilarating 90 minutes Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerbell and all the other much-loved characters will provide entertainment that the whole family will enjoy, from incredible acrobatic skating, beautiful music and stunning costumes to the comical banter between Hook and his side-kick Smee.
The action doesn’t stop for a second, with each scene brought vividly to life as a cast of international skaters performs daring stunts, spins and twists on and above the ice, guaranteed to leave you speechless.
Creative director and choreographer Robin Cousins said, “It was a thrill to adapt such a legendary story onto the ice. Having the skaters become actors, using their skating talents to tell this wonderful tale has been a great experience and something completely unique and new for the skating world. The reaction to the show from children and adults alike has been more than we could have wished for. They love the interaction. Come along and see for yourself!”
The show will be performed in a beautiful ice theatre within the National Athletics Stadium, set in over 200 acres of beautiful parkland, the perfect showcase for this enchanting performance.
Steve Ward, Head of Marketing and Sports Brands for Greenwich Leisure Ltd said “We are extremely proud to be hosting this event, which will not only be beneficial to Crystal Palace but to the whole of the local community”.
