Bradley, currently on our TV screens presenting The Chase and set to star in Dr Who in 2018, says: "I'm very excited to be in the 'World's Biggest Christmas Show' and I know it's going to be bigger, better and funnier than ever. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone at the Arena and playing the funny pirate Mr Smee."
Bradley's fearsome and villainous boss will be played by Martin Kemp of Spandau Ballet, EastEnders and Let It Shine fame. He says: "I'm thrilled to be playing Captain Hook this Christmas, and what really makes this production different from any other is the scale and size of everything. You won't have seen anything like it."
The show's producers are looking for it to be placed in the Guinness World Records as the World's Biggest Christmas Show. They promise ''the perfect funny, festive, fantastic, family treat, with a mix of comedy, spectacle, thrills and adventure.''
J.M. Barrie's original story and characters - Tinkerbell, Tiger Lily, Captain Hook, the pirates and, of course, Peter Pan, played by Matt Knight (Let It Shine), - will be brought to life by a cast of over 100 performers, including flying cirque and stunt stars, actors and musicians.
Neverland: Peter Pan's movie-style production
The audience will be close to the action as the show will be performed across three arena stages on a movie-style Neverland set. There will also be a giant LED screen - 60 feet wide - with computer graphic imagery and a live close-up TV relay of everything that's going on.
The special effects include a life-size Jolly Roger galleon 'sailing' around the Arena in front of a 10,000 gallon water wall. A team of BMX stunt riders, six aerial mermaids and a crazy collection of trapeze and trampoline stuntmen combine with custard pie slapstick specialists to provide comedy and adventure. Also, watch out for the biggest, scariest animatronic crocodile you've ever seen.
Snappy: Watch out for the croc!
Bradley says: "It really is an extraordinary production, the like of which has never been seen before! It's a big, bold arena extravaganza and a festive treat, with something for everyone."
The Birmingham show times are 7pm on December 20, 11am and 7pm on December 21, 7pm on December 22, 11am, 3pm and 7pm on December 23 and 1pm on December 24.
