It will mark the first coproduction with Polka Dot Pantomimes, the production company which has been creating Christmas magic with their shows across the country for 15 years at venues including Bristol and Bolton.

Chief executive of Polka Dot, Darren Maddison, said: “We are incredibly excited to be bringing The Magical Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan to the White Rock stage this Christmas. Audiences can expect a thrilling adventure, with spectacular scenery, dazzling costumes, amazing special effects, lots of audience participation, plenty of comedy and a good helping of fairy dust! This will be the Christmas event in Hastings this year. With star casting to be announced and the promise of a talented West End cast in supporting roles, the White Rock pantomime promises to be fun for all the family. With the introduction of four dedicated school performances during the opening week, the venue is hoping to capture the hearts and minds of young theatre-goers with a special ticket offer (£13 per student plus free teacher places), including the traditional interval ice cream.

White Rock Theatre venue director Nadine Passley added: “Panto season is such a special time for any regional theatre and we can’t wait to bring a magical version of Peter Pan’s adventures to life on stage at the White Rock. The title is perfect for Hastings, with pirates and mermaids, music, comedy, and everyone’s favourite bad guy Captain Hook.

"We look forward to welcoming everyone through our doors for some panto fun this Christmas!
