Posted on: Monday 13 March 2017

Soap Heartthrob to star in Panto at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre

The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan will take to the Pomegranate Theatre stage over the festive period this year.

Hoist the mainsail. Ship loads of pantomime-style nautical naughtiness is setting sail this Christmas as we hook up with the boy who never grew up in The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan. Defying gravity, Wendy, Michael and John Darling take the second star to the right and straight on till morning as they fly from the rooftops of Victorian London to join Peter, the Lost Boys and the fairy Tinkerbell in Never Land where the Jolly Roger is anchored and Captain Hook is on a mission to outwit and out manoeuvre our hero. Dame Able Mabel is on course to deliver a titanic treasure chest of sea faring couture and the ship’s mate Smee will add to the chock-a-block comedy capers and high sea shenanigans! You don’t have to believe in fairies but an awfully big adventure awaits audiences of all ages in a magical and spectacular pantomime!

Sam Attwater BW Low Res (2)

Bringing a touch of swagger and cutting a dashing figure is actor and champion ice skater Sam Attwater in the role of the ultimate panto baddie, Captain Hook!

Sam has been a regular fixture on our screens since his first foray into soap land in 2009. After completing his professional training at the prestigious Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts Sam landed his first TV gig playing Ricky in the popular Chester based soap Hollyoaks. Following a stint on the hit show, Sam became a regular on Eastenders, stepping onto the infamous Albert Square as the effortlessly cool East End bad boy and ladies’ man Leon Small. A student, who often bunked off school in favour of the boxing ring, Leon quickly earned a reputation as one of the square’s biggest womanizers, becoming involved in some of the soap’s biggest storylines in the process!

From the dramas of the East End to Dancing on Ice, Sam took part in the sixth series of the smash-hit skating show. Over the ten week series Sam rung up top scores with the all-star judging panel and the viewing public alike, going on to spin, arabesque and butterfly jump his way into the final where he and his partner Brianne performed The Bolero in front of Jane Torvil and Christopher Dean and over nine million viewers at home! They were crowned the winners of the popular programme with this final passionate performance winning them the hearts –and votes! - of the public! Due to Sam's success on the show he was invited back for the final 'All Stars' series in 2014 where he was paired with professional dancer Vicky Ogden. Finishing in fourth place their professional partnership came to a close but a whirlwind romance followed with the dancing pair tying the knot later that same year. 

Among his many theatrical credits are leading performances in End of the Rainbow, Dreamboats and Petticoats, The Rocky Horror Show and Jason and the Argonauts to name just a few.  With time spent treading the boards, in addition to his film work and a guest appearance in the popular ITV drama Mr Selfridge Sam has never been out of the limelight since he took his first steps onto the Hollyoaks set! 

Pantomime producer Paul Holman said “I am thrilled to have such a talented and accomplished actor taking the lead in this year’s pantomime. His years of showbiz experience will bring flair to this fabulous festive production.”

The Pantomime Adventures of Peter Pan opens on Saturday 2 December 2017 and plays till Tuesday 2 January 2018. Tickets are available to purchase here, or by calling 01246 345 222.
