“We are delighted to be partnering with Impresario Productions to bring this exciting and entertaining experience to our great city,” the Lord Mayor Sally Capp said.

“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,” she added.

Theatre producer Craig Donnell from Impresario Productions said “We are delighted to be presenting a spectacular theatre experience in a unique venue with technology Australian audiences have never seen before.”

Peter Pan The 360° Adventure is an Australian-first experience with over 5,000 square metres of high resolution digital scenic projections and Computer Generated Image (CGI) effects to create a spectacular technological backdrop to tell the much-loved Peter Pan story,” Mr Donnell said.

“The cast perform elaborate aerial feats against this backdrop to give the audience a bird’s eye view of flying over the rooftops of Edwardian London to the magical kingdom of Neverland. 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 spectacular video game,” he added.

Peter Pan – The 360° Adventure will employ over 200 staff, cast and crew during the Melbourne season.
