"Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning"

The high-tech stage performance is faithfully based on the JM Barrie’s classic play and novel with the blessing of JM Barrie’s family and has already been seen by more than 1.6 million people across the UK and US.

Now let us tell you about this state of the art venue. Purpose built especially for the production – the 1500 seat, air conditioned, theatre in-the-round doesn’t have a single seat more than 20 metres from the action.

Delivering a never before seen theatre experience, the show features 360-degree video projection onto the inside upper walls of the Hippodrome, your sure to feel like you’re flying over the rooftops of Edwardian London on the way to the magical kingdom of Neverland.

The cast perform elaborate aerial feats against this backdrop to give the audience a bird’s eye view. With an original soundtrack written by celebrated composer Benjamin Wallfisch and recorded by members of the London Symphony Orchestra, the experience has been described as like living in Pixar film or a video game.

Now, all of that sounds truly magical to us.

We are delighted to be partnering with Impresario Productions to bring this exciting and entertaining experience to our great city. Melbourne is the undeniable theatre capital of Australia, and we’re looking forward to welcoming theatregoers back to the city for a spot of pre-show shopping and a bite to eat at one of our fabulous restaurants.
