Peter Pan - Palladium

Peter Pan has been suggested for Palladium. I think this would be too thin, however it could work.... I think they should have a "Mrs Hook" character (similar to when they had Joan Collins as Queen Rat alongside Nigel Havers as King Rat in Birmingham); perhaps played by Joan Collins or Barbara Windsor character. Captain Hook, played by someone such as Nigel Havers (or another famous, but good 'baddie'). A mermaid character as has been done recently by Qdos (perhaps someone like Su Pollard, Julie Walters). Peter by the standard boy band star, or Lee Mead etc. Smee (I can't think of a really famous one to play Smee?) and a dame in the form of Mrs Smee (Jeffrey Holland, Gary Wilmot again?)
Overall I think for Peter Pan to work it needs extra characters and needs to add glamour - not just Julian Clary and Paul Zerdin every year, great performers, but they aren't the kind to have a fixed venue every year.
Really interested to hear other people's speculations, rumours, thoughts, wishes
