The latest version of the classic panto is directed by Jude Christian and written by Christian and Cariad Lloyd, and is the Lyric Hammersmith's 10th anniversary pantomime. Expect the usual: great music, singing and dancing, totally villainous baddies and heroes we love to cheer for, set in our favourite city: London. Where else?
Following the adventures of Whittington and his cat, the rags-to-riches tale gets a modern and fresh twist - but don't worry. Your favourite baddie, Queen Rat, played by Sarah-Louise Young, is evil as ever. Get those vocal chords well-rested before the BOOing commences...
To mark the Lyric Hammersmith's 10th anniversary of pantomimes, there's also a celebratory performance of the show on Friday, 7 December, with special guest appearances and a look back on the last decade of panto at the Lyric Hammersmith, which has seen stars like Mel Giedroyc, Vikki Stone and Stevie Webb grace its stage, as well as Jamael Westman, whom you'll recognise as the lead in Hamilton.
Dick Whittington stars Margaret Cabourn-Smith as Mayor Pigeon, Hollie Edwin as Alice Fitzwarren, Jodie Jacobs as Bow Belles, Keziah Joseph as Tom Cat. Luke Latchman as Dick Whittington, Carl Mullaney as Sarah Fitzwarren and Sarah-Louise Young as Queen Rat.
Tickets start from £10 and the show is suitable for kids six and over. We just love panto season. Don't you?
