Two days after their London closing, the Peter Pan company began their tour visiting such cities as Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dublin, Liverpool, and Birmingham. Most of the cast remained intact although Gerald du Maurier (who only played Mr. Darling in London) was replaced by Loring Fernie as both Hook and Mr. Darling and Hilda Mayfren took over Sybil Carlisle’s acting chores as Mrs. Darling. Frederick Annerley briefly played Hook during the run while Gerald Malvern played Cecco. The company toured until May 18, 1907.
Opening at the Prince’s Theatre in Manchester on December 24, 1906
was the second Peter Pan company which toured until May 11, 1907. Below, from Fifty Years of Peter Pan by Roger Lancelyn Green, is the company:

Ela Q. May is pictured above although it is questionable if the pajamas she is wearing belongs to Wendy as this is the same photograph featured in the Mills & Boone book, Peter Pan, which advertises “‘Viyella’ Pyjamas- ‘Viyella’ for day and night wear.” To the right is Zena dare, whom Roger Lancelyn Green credits as the first actress to bring “a touch of musical comedy or pantomime technique” to Peter.
