Peter Pan - Brian Dowling as Captain Hook

Rehearsals are well under way for Brian's first appearance on stage as Captain Hook in Peter Pan. Brian appeared on the RTÉ Seoige Show this afternoon 5th Dec 2008, where he said how hard he had been working on rehearsals, doing 9am to 6pm seven days a week. He explained how he was playing a very spoilt, camp, Captain Hook that fancies Wendy, - a demand that required him to use all his acting skills. He said that it was an all singing and all dancing production which was very hard, but also great fun.He said that he was singing Pink's So What, with some word changes, however when asked if he would sing live for them now on the show he declined, saying it would make people turn off.

Brian also made reference to the €28,000 he raised for the Make A Wish Foundation Ireland by his appearance on Failté Towers, enabling 6 children to be granted wishes, having met some of the children he said it was very emotional.

Peter Pan opens at the Tivoli, Francis Street, Dublin on Dec 11th, and there are two shows daily up until the first week in February, more details on the Panto website at
