A STAR of stage, screen and musical theatre is confirmed to play Captain Hook at Bath's Royal Theatre for the swashbuckling Christmas treat that is Peter Pan.

Paul Nicholas will play the famous villain and Bath pantomime favourite Jon Monie will star as Smee from December 13 to January 13. 

When Peter Pan flies into the Darling children’s nursery one night and whisks them off to Neverland, a thrilling adventure begins in the magical world of Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys, where they do battle with the dastardly Captain Hook and his pirate crew.

Packed with comedy, singing, dancing, beautiful costumes and plenty of audience participation, Peter Pan promises to be an unmissable, swashbuckling Christmas treat for audiences of all ages - with flying, CGI special effects and all the traditional ingredients that make Bath pantomimes so special.

Tickets are on sale now with an early bird discount for bookings on specific performances paid for by the end of October.
