Steve Hewlett as Smee in Peter Pan at The Chrysalis in Milton Keynes

by Jasmine Storm

Mr Smee played by Steve Hewlett and he was hilarious. Steve is a veteran on stage and his gentle manner is juxtaposition with his grandpa puppet who is a bit ‘in your face’. This makes us love Steve all the more. Steve was forth in Britain’s Got Talent a few years back and it is very clear that Steve has talent. Ventriloquism is a skill, but when you add in the on-going jokes about one good hand and how he can’t go anywhere without grandpa it takes it to another level.
