Will these boys grow up after their time in Neverland?

Swansea Grand Theatre

Four young Swansea performers’ careers have got off to a flying start. Alfie Hyett-Evans, Aled Rees, Dexter Rees-O’Malley and Arlo Rimmer-Simoncini are playing the Darling boys in the perennially popular panto, Peter Pan.

Dexter Rees-O’Malley, who plays Michael Darling, is the youngest actor to appear in a Grand panto, and at the tender age of 6, he may not get older after his time in Neverland. This is Dexter’s first appearance on stage and loves to sing and dance. He would like to be a zookeeper when he grows up, maybe in charge of the crocodiles?!

Arlo Rimmer-Simoncini, aged 7, is also playing the role of Michael Darling.  Arlo is an excellent sportsman, with a passion for football as well as performing.  This is also his first role performing on stage and he’s looking forward to his football trial for the Swans when Peter Pan is over.

Playing John Darling are Alfie Hyett-Evans, who is 10, and 11 year old Aled Rees.

No stranger to the stage, Alfie recently returned from playing the role of Benji in the Norwegian Cruise Liners’ production of Priscilla Queen and prior to this Alfie performed in the National Tour of Joesph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dream Coat at the Wales Millennium Centre.  Aled has also appeared in the national tour of Joesph and the Amazing Technicoloured Dream Coat and he loves singing and acting.

Peter Pan guarantees fun for all the family with flying, sword fights, an ENORMOUS crocodile and much more. Don’t miss the boat; Peter Pan finishes on 12 January.
