See Matt making his panto debut as he stars alongside Russell Grant, Andy Collins & Holly Brewer in Peter Pan at the Aylesbury Waterside Theatre this December.

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre complete their line up for this year's all-singing all-dancing family panto Peter Pan, as they announce that Heart Breakfast presenter Matt Brown is to join Strictly favourite Russell Grant, local comedy hero Andy Collins and upcoming star Holly Brewer as Starkey the pirate, along with consummate baddy Steve Serling who will play Hook and West End star Adam Pettigrew as Peter.

Peter Pan will be Matt's first Panto and he says a dream come true “I've always loved panto and have always wanted to be on stage with the gang joining in the fun. I’m so excited to be appearing in every performance of Peter Pan at the Waterside, I was there at the opening of the theatre as I’m local so it feels really special to be doing something I have always wanted to do somewhere which is important to me, and I just know we’re going to have a real laugh with such a fantastic cast! I can't wait!”

Adam Pettigrew has also been announced in the role of Peter, Adam can currently be seen in the West End Smash hit Wicked as Boq. Since graduating from The Arts Educational School London in 2010 Adam has enjoyed great stage success in the Avenue Q UK Tour, A Slice of Saturday Night, Pay As You Go Oh! What A Lovely War, Christmas in New York and An Evening with Adam Gwon. This is the second time Adam will appear in Peter Pan.

Fly away with this all-star cast on a spectacular journey of wonder and excitement into the magical world of Neverland to join Peter, Wendy and the Lost Boys in their thrilling adventure to save Tinkerbell from the villainous Captain Hook and his crew of pirates. With stunning special effects, amazing flying, sumptuous costumes, superb sets and a good helping of fairydust, Peter Pan will be the perfect treat for the whole family.
