Peterhead Pantomime Group are set to stage a Disney classic for 2016.

This year’s offering - and for the very first time in the Blue Toon - will be J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan, the tale of the boy who never grew up.

Firm dates have yet to be announced for the performances, but as in years gone past the show is set to be a sell-out.

Auditions were opened last week when a link went live on the group’s Facebook page for those wishing to try their hand at the principal role.

The principal auditions will be held on Wednesday, August 17, at 6.30pm in the theatre with callbacks on Thursday, August 18 if necessary.

Meanwhile, registration for chorus auditions will go live on Wednesday, August 17.

A spokesperson for the group told the Buchanie: “This panto has never been staged in Peterhead before so will be a Blue Toon first.

“And, of course, it will be packed full of the usual Doric fun.

“We can’t wait to share our unique take on this classic story and we’re sure it will be a hit with regular panto goers,” he added.

Peter Pan tells the story of a mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up.

Peter Pan spends his never-ending childhood having adventures on the island of Neverland as the leader of the Lost Boys, interacting with fairies, priates, mermaids, Native Americans and occasionally ordinary children from the world outside Neverland.

We can’t wait!
