'The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.'

Night after night, Peter Pan stares in through Wendy, John and Michael Darling's bedroom window, longing to hear the stories told by their mother.

One thrilling evening the brave, wistful, maverick boy who refuses to grow up, teaches the Darling children how to fly, whisking them off to the magical world of Never Land - a deliciously frightening place. As well as other occasionally ordinary children from the outside world, they encounter a company of lost boys, mysterious mermaids, a gang of swashbuckling pirates and their leader, the villainous Captain Hook!

With Chichester Festival Youth Theatre, Director Dale Rooks has been presenting captivating productions for over a decade including the Christmas show in the Festival Theatre. In 2015, CFYT received the prestigious UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People for Running Wild.

Magnificent. Christmas world not be complete if this show was missed.
