Peter Pan flies onto the web thanks to the Lyric Theatre

Following a massive response to the online streaming of Alice - The Musical, this Easter the Lyric Theatre Online presents their 2019 Christmas production Peter Pan - The Musical by Paul Boyd.

Adapted from the play by JM Barrie the full recording will be available to watch free online from 1pm Friday April 10 until midnight Monday April 13.

Jimmy Fay, Executive Producer of Lyric Theatre Belfast, explained: “Lyric Theatre Online is our response to keeping our much-loved theatre alive during these very challenging times. With our mission to create, entertain and inspire we plan to keep our stages bright by providing audiences with online access to a range of shows. This Easter we are delighted to provide families with the opportunity to watch the fantastic Peter Pan - The Musical by the incredible Paul Boyd.

Director and writer/composer of Peter Pan - the Musical, Paul Boyd said: “During this difficult time, we have all been thinking how best to use our resources to help others. I am delighted that my colleagues at the Lyric Theatre are releasing the video of “Peter Pan - The Musical” and I hope that it provides some hours of magical entertainment for households this Easter as we all follow official advice and stay at home. Making this show available online is a wonderful way of showcasing the Lyric’s ongoing commitment to producing high-quality, professional musical work for all ages, and celebrating the talents of the Lyric’s cast and creative team who have given this release their blessing.”

Like all theatres all over the country, the Lyric Theatre is closed and facing a devastating impact from the coronavirus pandemic. As a charity, the Lyric relies upon its audience for up to two-thirds of their income, and is the largest employer of freelance actors and other theatre professionals in Northern Ireland.

A spokesperson for the theatre said: “To help Lyric withstand this impact please consider making a small donation as you enjoy this production of Peter Pan - The Musical at home. All support is greatly appreciated.”

Peter Pan - The Musical will be available on from Friday April 10 at 1pm - Monday April 13 at midnight.
