What’s on: this weekend
Fri 9 – Sun 11 June
NT Live: Peter Pan, Norden Farm Maidenhead, Sat 10 June
This recorded performance captured live from the National Theatre tells the modern-day version of JM Barrie’s classic Peter Pan about the boy who never grew up (*ahem, sounds like Mr Muddy) It’s a show that both adults and kids will love. Tickets £15, suitable for children aged 7+.
Pam Ann, Hexagon Reading, Fri 9 June
The A-List queen of the skies, lands her Louboutin’s on international turf and will hit the tarmac running, with her 20th anniversary UK tour. Pam Ann has developed cult-status with her masterful portrayal of a brash hot mess of an Australian airhostess. As the airports got bigger, so has her ego… and her mouth filthier. Enjoy the most politically incorrect flight path, with Pam’s blisteringly funny take on the world of airlines and aircrew. Tickets: 1st class £29; Business £26; Economy £23.
Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show For Kids, Hexagon Reading, Sat 10 June
Mutton chops, waistcoats and a cabin set the scene for Morgan & West’s Utterly Spiffing Spectacular Magic Show For Kids. What’s with the long title, guys? With lots of Victorian style comic banter, the time-travelling duo perform a boxful of bafflement and impossibility. The magic is mysterious with brain-bursting illusions with a heavy helping of tom-foolery. A heavy dose of silly sounds good to me. New time (11.30am) added. Tickets £12.
The Tortoise and the Hare, South Hill Arts Bracknell, Sun 11 June
If you have a child who likes to be in the thick of the action (er, that’ll be the youngest Mudder) then The Tortoise & The Hare is perfect. It’s an interactive theatrical adventure in which Tilly the Tortoise and Hatty the Hare go head to head on sports day. Expect music, games and joining the egg and spoon race.
