Maureen’s in the mood for Neverland

It’s that time again. Well, not quite but it is time to announce the latest star name for this year’s Christmas show at the Blackpool Opera House. Blackpool’s own Maureen Nolan will join Jennifer Ellison, Jake Quickenden and Scott Gallagher as Mrs Darling in the stellar line up for this year’s magical family Christmas adventure, Peter Pan (16 Dec – 07 Jan)

Maureen has been singing with her sisters – The Nolans – since she was nine years old. With  phenomenal record sales worldwide and having have worked with some of the world’s most respected artists including a European tour with Frank Sinatra, The Nolans put an entire generation ‘In the Mood for Dancing’ and recently reunited for the sell-out ‘I’m in the Mood Again’ tour.

Maureen tells us ‘I’m so excited to be joining the cast of Peter Pan at the Opera House. I love the Winter Gardens and it’s really near to home for me so it will be lovely to spend Christmas with my loved ones but still be able to join in all of the festive fun on stage.  Peter Pan is shaping up to be an awfully big adventure and I can’t wait to see you all there.’

Join Peter, Wendy, John and Michael as they take on the villainous Captain Hook and his band of merry pirates in the battle for Neverland in a spectacular show for all the family. With a feisty fairy and a band of lost boys on their side will it be enough to stop the evil Hook?

Peter Pan is produced by the award-winning Selladoor Family, written by Robert Marsden and will be directed by Kirstie Davis.  Lucie Pankhurst joins the team as Movement Director.
