We love CBeebies and we love shows so this CBeebies show looks fantastic! I really hope we get tickets. Obviously Master A is too young (the child needs to be four and older) but one of us can take Miss A! Check out the press release that I have included below to find out more. To apply for tickets then you need to visit http://www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours midday today. Be quick! I think they will go quickly!
Families have the chance to see their favourite CBeebies stars on stage in a brand new musical adaptation of the children’s classic, Peter Pan.
Many of the channel’s favourite faces will be appearing including: Justin Fletcher (Gigglebiz / Justin’s House / Something Special); Ben Faulks (Mr Bloom); Katrina Bryan (Nina and the Neurons); Chris Jarvis (Show Me Show Me); Pui Fan Lee (Show Me Show Me); Katy Ashworth (I Can Cook); Andy Day (Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures); and Cat Sandion along with a host of other much loved *CBeebies presenters.
The classic novel by J.M. Barrie has been specially adapted for the CBeebies audience but will keep many of the core ingredients that make it a favourite for both children and adults alike with high adventure, aerial acrobatics, laugh-out-loud moments and catchy songs throughout.
There are two performances of the show, both which will be filmed on Saturday, October 11th, for a programme that will be the centrepiece of this year’s CBeebies Christmas schedule.
Free tickets for CBeebies Peter Pan are released at midday today (September 10th 2014) through www.bbc.co.uk/showsandtours and will be allocated via a ballot which is open for one week. The ballot will close at midday on September 17th. Performances will take place at 1pm and again at 4.30pm on Saturday, October 11th 2014, at The Lowry, Salford Quays.
Over that same weekend there will also be a host of different activities and a range of entertainment taking place outside The Lowry, all created by BBC Learning, to excite and inspire young audiences. No tickets are required for the events and the activities will run on Friday and Saturday (10th/11th October) from 10am – 6pm. As CBeebies Peter Pan is performed on stage there will be live streaming on a big screen for those unable to get tickets. More details of the weekend activities will be released over the coming weeks.
CBeebies Controller, Kay Benbow, says: “Peter Pan is a classic and enduring children’s story and we’re delighted to bring this special adaptation to The Lowry with so many of our CBeebies favourite stars.”
CBeebies Peter Pan is produced by Jon Hancock and the Executive Producer is Tony Reed. Executive Producer for BBC Learning is Moray London.
