15 JANUARY – 2 FEBRUARY
The world`s premier theatrical ice skating company, The Imperial Ice Stars, returns to South Africa with a brand-new show PETER PAN ON ICE. Take a journey to Neverland in this classic tale of magic and make-believe, spectacularly staged on real ice.
Showcasing 23 former World, European and National Championship-level skaters, the highly accomplished cast will astound and mesmerise audiences with their adrenaline-rich, dramatic performance. Collectively, the entire cast holds more than 250 competition medals and will bring their athletic and artistic talents to retell J M Barrie`s well-loved story of Peter Pan.
Join Peter – the boy who never grows up – as he and Tinker Bell whisk Wendy and her brothers from their London home off on a magical journey to Neverland. Watch as they enjoy thrilling adventures with the Lost Boys, Tiger Lily and the Mermaids, encountering the evil Captain Hook, his pirates and a very hungry crocodile!
Set to an original score, the show features exquisite, innovative choreography as well as powerful story-telling created by Artistic Director Tony Mercer, widely regarded as the world`s leading creator of theatre-on-ice.
In addition, awe-inspiring acrobatics, flying sequences, LED illumination effects, aerial gymnastics and spectacular fire-on-ice add drama and mystery to the theatrical experience. The dazzling and sophisticated costumes are designed by Tony Mercer in collaboration with Veronique Pasternak.
