Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure is a musical based on J. M. Barrie's play Peter Pan, or the Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, with a book by Willis Hall and music and lyrics by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe. The show opened in Copenhagen in 1996. The production was first broadcast in 2001 as a New Year's Eve concert, starring Sheila Hancock, Laura Michelle Kelly, and Joe McFadden. It was presented at Festival Hall in the 2002/2003 Christmas period where it was badly reviewed.
Since then, Stiles and Drewe have revised the show. In 2007/2008 the show played at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre, directed by Rachel Kavanaugh and starring Peter Caulfield, Gina Beck, and David Birrell, receiving positive reviews. A year later, it moved to the West Yorkshire Playhouse starring James Gillan, Amy Lennox, and David Birrell again as Captain Hook, again receiving positive reviews.
