Mousetrap Theatre is kick-starting their 2020 season with a rousing rendition of the popular pantomime, Captain Hook’s Revenge; an iteration in the Peter Pan series.

Director, Jean Bowra, is looking forward to audiences viewing all the colour and fun of the show when it opens.

“Audiences will love the fun songs we have chosen, full of energy and everyone is welcome to join in and sing along,” Jean said.

“The panto is filled with humour for both old and young, so a good laugh should be enjoyed by all. 

“Our costumes are bright and colourful and of course we have a large cast of talented and enthusiastic actors who will entertain you for the entire show.”

Jean began her career with Mousetrap Theatre in the 1990s, as an actor, before moving to directing in the past few years.

She admits that directing Captain Hook’s Revenge has given her a lot of good laughs in rehearsals.

“My greatest enjoyment in directing [Captain] Hook’s Revenge is seeing my cast slowly develop their characters,” Jean said.

“I gave everyone permission to be pirates for the opening scene and it was amazing to see how everyone took on the role; it is one of the most rollicking opening scenes I have seen at Mousetrap in years!

“I am doing all the choreography for the first time and this is both a pleasure and a challenge, but has produced loads of laughs along the way.”

In this rendition of the tale, Captain Hook is still determined to seek revenge on the crocodile for eating his hand, with a few new twists in the plot.

Wendy and Michael Darling are now teenagers joined by ‘Tonkerbell’ the punk fairy, so the dastardly Captain Hook may find his plan harder to carry out than he first thought!

Performances begin on Friday 10 January with matinee and evening times available.
