Tom Lister, best known for his portrayal of Carl King in the ITV soap opera, will play the evil Captain Hook in the Gordon Craig Theatre’s production of Peter Pan.

The fun-filled family show will also star the returning Aidan O’Neill as Smee, and Stevenage’s favourite pantomime Dame Paul Laidlaw as Mrs Smee.

The panto, which opens on Friday, November 25, also stars Ewan Goddard in the title role and Laura Baldwin as Wendy.

Britain’s Got Talent dance sensation Twist & Pulse will appear at pirates Swash and Buckle.

The panto runs from November 25 to Sunday, January 22, 2017, with nearly 100 performances.

But more than 40 per cent of tickets have already been snapped up and it is already the venue’s fastest selling pantomime.

Ticket prices start from £16.

This year there will also be a relaxed performance on Wednesday, January 11 at 7pm.

The special performance will be adapted to allow individuals with autism spectrum conditions, sensory and communication disorders, or learning disabilities to enjoy the show.

The show’s Peter Pan, Ewan Goddard, tweeted: “Absolutely brilliant news! Well done team @GCTStevenage and @Jordan_Prods.”
