Theatre fans, it’s time to head to Neverland. Peter Pan — The 360° Adventure is bringing the magic to Melbourne in June 2022. After garnering huge success in the US and UK, attracting over 1.6 million visitors, Impresario Productions is bringing the fairytale to Australia.
Housed in the new Impresario Hippodrome at Birrarung Marr, the theatre can seat 1500 people and features state-of-the-art facilities.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Impresario Productions to bring this exciting and entertaining experience to our great city,” the Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.
“Melbourne is the undeniable theatre capital of Australia, and we’re looking forward to welcoming theatregoers back to the city for a spot of pre-show shopping and a bite to eat at one of our fabulous restaurants,” she added.
Craig Donnell, theatre producer from Impresario Productions said: “We are delighted to be presenting a spectacular theatre experience in a unique venue with technology Australian audiences have never seen before.
“Peter Pan The 360° Adventure is an Australian-first experience with over 5,000 square metres of high resolution digital scenic projections and Computer Generated Image (CGI) effects to create a spectacular technological backdrop to tell the much-loved Peter Pan story.
“The cast perform elaborate aerial feats against this backdrop to give the audience a bird’s eye view of flying over the rooftops of Edwardian London to the magical kingdom of Neverland. With an original soundtrack written by celebrated composer Benjamin Wallfisch and recorded by members of the London Symphony Orchestra, the experience has been described as like living in Pixar film or a spectacular video game,” he added.
Peter Pan — The 360° Adventure is based on the play and novel by JM Barrie, and as the blessing of his family.
