Rehearsals have started for 2015 St Albans pantomime Peter Pan at The Alban Arena.

This year’s ever-popular Christmas panto will bring festive cheer to The Alban Arena from Friday, December 4 until Sunday, January 3, with performance times varying throughout the run.

The fun-filled family show stars Jake Wood – EastEnders’ Max Branning and star of last year’s Strictly Come Dancing – as the dastardly Captain Hook.

Katrina Bryan, from CBeebies’ Nina and the Neurons, plays Tinkerbell and St Albans’ very own comedy legend, the one and only Bob Golding, is Mrs Smee. Yes, that is correct. Mrs Smee!

The venue tweeted a picture of the cast this morning (Monday) with the message: “This crazy bunch have started taking over the Arena today! Rehearsals have started and everyone is VERY EXCITED!”

Once again the hilarious show has been written by Paul Hendy, and brought to the stage by the same creative team behind last year’s smash hit Jack and the Beanstalk.

Tickets have been on sale since last Christmas, and are flying out the doors faster than Tinkerbell.

Hook your tickets now. Prices range from £10.50 to £26, depending on the performance.
