Peter Pan Jnr (play) @ Eltham Little Theatre
Jun 27 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Eltham Little Theatre are generously offering U3A members half price tickets for some of their shows of Peter Pan Jnr, a musical based on the play by J.M. Barrie. The relevant dates are Sunday 27th June at 1pm and Sunday 4th July at 1pm. This musical is the theatre’s youth production so you might like to take your grandchildren.

Here’s the blurb about the show: Peter and his mischievous fairy sidekick, Tinkerbell, visit the nursery of the Darling children late one night and, with a sprinkle of pixie dust, begin a magical journey across the stars that none of them will ever forget. In the adventure of a lifetime, the travellers come face to face with a ticking crocodile, a fierce Indian tribe, a band of bungling pirates and, of course, the villainous Captain Hook. Featuring the iconic songs, ‘I’m Flying’, ‘I’ve Gotta Crow’, ‘I Won’t Grow Up’ and ‘Never Never Land’, and a rousing book full of magic, warmth and adventure, Peter Pan Jnr is the perfect show for the child in all of us … who dreamed of soaring high and never growing up.

Here are the mechanics: you book your tickets online. Choose the date, then the number of tickets, then enter the ‘202150’ discount code in the ‘gift certificate / promotion code’ box, then pay.

Note that the discount is off the Single Seat Adult and the Group booking option, not Concession. The discount is also only for electronic bookings, not for walk ins, and seats cannot be reserved without payment.
