Joe Pasquale plays Smee and John Challis becomes Captain Hook in Nottingham Theatre Royal’s panto Peter Pan.

Pasquale, one of the hardest-working comedians in Britain, has just completed a tour playing Frank Spencer in Some Mothers Do ‘Ave ‘Em. Challis is best known as Boycie in the BBC comedy series Only Fools and Horses.

Recent graduate from Trinity Laban Jack McNeill plays Pete Pan. Lucy Evans is Tinker Bell.

Michael Harrison, managing director of producers Qdos Entertainment, said, “we’re delighted to be bringing Joe Pasquale and John Challis to star in our Nottingham pantomime. This year’s production promises all the laughs, audience participation and magic Nottingham audiences have come to expect each festive season.”

Adapted from the original by J M Barrie, Peter Pan runs at the Theatre Royal from Saturday 8 December until Sunday 13 January.
