can’t wait to give a warm welcome to the city of


“The most important thing is laughter, if you

don’t laugh you can stay at home, but we just want

laughter in the room that’s why we do it,” he says.

“Panto can be a long few weeks, we are working

doing two shows a day, if you go to West End they

won’t do this many shows so it’s a very intense

month-and-a-half. It’s also over the holiday period

where people would normally be spending time with

their families but we choose to do this and entertain

families because there’s no better thing at Christmas

than hearing a room full of laughter so it’s great

when you get the family together.

“And panto is brilliant because a grandma will be

laughing at something similar to the grandchildren,

and there’s no other show where that happens.”

Getting back to life pre-Covid times may feel a little

unusual but we are getting there slowly and it’s

the small things that we have learnt to appreciate.

Whether that be, going for walks, seeing friends and

family, going to eat at a restaurant, even returning to

work and simply putting passion into everything you

do – giving it your all, just like the production team

and cast of the wonderful Peter Pan.

“I’m looking forward to working with people again;

it’s going to be so nice to have creative people in the

same room and choreographers, lighting technicians,

musicians, actors as well,” says Sam.

“Although I direct the production it’s nice to have

actors’ input as well because everybody is different,

and you want to be able to bring peoples’ own

personality to the role.

“I can’t wait! It’s been too long since we’ve done this,

it’s nearly 18 months for most of us and nothing is

the same as panto or as theatre so the thought of

being able to just walk back and cry those lovely

words of ‘Hello Lichfield’ will be beautiful.”

This showstopper of a performance is not to be

missed and can be enjoyed by all of the family at

such a beautiful time of year, so take the time to

relax, sit back and laugh your way into the new year.

After all, as Captain Hook himself says, “It’s

magical, unmissable and joyous”.

The All New Adventures of Peter Pan will

be on at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre from

November 25 to January 22, 2022. For tickets
