NEWS: Barn Theatre Announces International Digital Schools Tour of Peter Pan

The Barn Theatre have announced today that their reimagined one-man production of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan will be available for schools to live stream as part of an “international digital tour”.

The one-man production, which will star Waylon Jacobs (Hamilton, Memphis, The Last Five Years) from 3 December 2020 – 3 January 2021, will be available for schools to purchase streaming links to watch a live performance direct from the Barn Theatre to their classrooms.

This new take on the classic tale, adapted by Alan Pollock and co-conceived by Kirk Jameson and Nick Barstow, follows a father in a hotel room, three thousand miles away from home. Desperate not to miss bedtime, he recreates his daughter’s favourite story: an epic tale of adventure, pirates, fairies – a crocodile with gigantic teeth! – and a little boy who refuses to grow old….

The international digital tour will be available with show times on the following selected dates:

  • Tuesday 8 December at 1pm
  • Wednesday 9 December at 1pm
  • Thursday 10 December at 1pm
  • Tuesday 15 December at 10am & 1:30pm
  • Wednesday 16 December at 10am & 1:30pm
  • Thursday 17 December at 2:30pm

This brand-new adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan by Alan Pollock is co-conceived and directed by Director-in-Residence Kirk Jameson, co-conceived with music by Nick Barstow, movement direction by Tosh Wanogho-Maud, set and costume design by Gregor Donnelly, projection design by Benjamin Collins, sound design by Harry Smith and LX design by Joe Price.

“We are so proud to be launching this digital schools tour. In a year that has been unprecedently challenging for children across the country we are so happy that we are able to still offer schools a chance to make their annual trip to see a live performance at the theatre, albeit virtually this year from the comfort of their classroom.”

Iwan Lewis, Barn Theatre Artistic Director and CEO

This latest digital announcement follows the Barn Theatre’s recent acclaimed stream of their production of Stephen Sondheim’s Marry Me A Little, also directed by Kirk Jameson, and their critically acclaimed digital co-production of Henry Filloux-Bennett’s adaptation of What a Carve Up!, directed by Tamara Harvey.

The Barn Theatre have also announced plans to make their production available for free to stream to hospitals and care homes over the festive period. There are also plans to run international live streams for the general public, with more information to be announced at a later date.
