Touring Seasons 1908-09 and 1909-1910

George Shelton played Smee for 24 seasons between 1904 and 1929The 1908-09 tour of the provinces of England included many of the same cast members of the London production so I am only including cast changes. As I do not own any primary touring sources from that season I am using Roger Lancelyn Green’s well documented Fifty Years of Peter Pan. George Shelton played Smee for 24 seasons from 1904 through 1929 so I thought it would be fun to include a rare photo of him in this entry. He chose to sign as “Smee”.

1900-09 Touring Season

Mr. Darling……….Stanley Logan (Hook was played by Robb Harwood)

1900-09 Touring Season

For the following season, 1909-10, I have several programmes which I have included as scans. While Green’s book only attributes Frederick Annerley as the touring Hook, the Theatre Royal programme from Newcastle on the Tyne lists Robb Harwood playing at that theatre during the first week of the tour. Frederick Annerley played Cecco during the London run as well as the week at the Theatre Royal. Maidie Andrews, who played Second Twin in the 1906-07 tour played First Twin during this season.
