MYSTERIOUS lands filled with pirates, Indians and ticking crocodiles will transport visitors back in time to a wonderful world of make-believe as Wild Rose Ice theatre brings to life the book that has inspired generation after generation.

Unique touches, such as penny farthings being ridden across the ice as the curtain opens on the skyline of a London park, complete with chimney stacks and chimney sweeps, paves the way for a fast-moving production, which promises to be both lavish and spectacular, dazzling with sheer beauty and elegance that will thrill the whole family.

Peter Pan On Ice will be staged at The Bristol Hippodrome, from January 13-16.

The spectacular adaptation of J M Barrie’s famous story of the boy who never grew up will be staged at the venue with the world-renowned Wild Rose Russian Ice Stars.

Main characters such as Peter Pan, Wendy, Tinkerbell and Captain Hook will spring to life against a backdrop of fire, Indian drumming, and incredible scenery changes from Wendy’s bedroom through to Hook’s secret hideout.

Master classes from Igor Moskvin, coach to the Russian National team, helped prepare the Russian Ice Stars.

Stunningly moves to captivate audiences of all ages are the work of Caverliere Giuseppe Arena, who was responsible for the choreography of the opening ceremony of Turin’s 2006 Winter Olympic Games.

A specially-commissioned, original musical score from Italian composer Maestro Silvio Amato, responsible for Hollywood film industry compositions including Screw Loose, Oscar Wilde and Novello, provides a musical backdrop.

The performances are designed to fit theatre stages throughout the world, allowing audiences to view moves close-up, different from the traditional view gained during ice arena productions.

Tickets, priced £15.50-31.50, are available from www.bristol-hippodrome.co.uk
