Dinah Sheridan As Peter Pan… And As Wendy.

The lovely Dinah Sheridan is one of three actresses to play both lead roles in  theatrical productions of “Peter Pan.” In her 1934 UK tour, she played Wendy Darling, and in 1936, she played Peter Pan until Elsa Lanchester had finished the London season. Elsa Lanchester is the only “Peter Pan” who also has portrayed the Bride of Frankenstein. (The other two actresses who have played both Wendy and Peter on the stage are Lila Marivan (Peter in 1919, and Wendy in 1923) and Joan Greenwood (dates unknown). What breakfast food powered the performances of the other actresses has been lost to time.
