Janice Honeyman’s Peter Pan
Director Janice Honeyman is back with a new panto — the tale of Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, and the Darling children. “I absolutely love the story of Peter Pan because it has so many elements to it... What I’m trying to do this year… is to highlight more issues that children, teenagers, and young adults deal with, like bullying, being left out, [and] feelings of rejection,” she says. Sandi Dlangalala stars as Peter Pan while Ben Voss plays Captain Hook and Michael Richard is his sidekick Smee. Kiruna-Lind Devar is playing Wendy, Virtuous Kandemiri is Tinkerbell, and Dame Clementina Coconut is played by David Arnold Johnson.
