Why See Dick Whittington?
The Palladium Pantomime is back this Christmas!
It's never too early to think about Christmas shows, especially if that show stars West End royalty Elaine Paige.Following the resounding success of 2016's Cinderella, Qdos Entertainment returns to mount a brand new production of that panto classic, Dick Whittington.
An all-star cast will help to tell Dick's story, led by Half a Sixpence's Charlie Stemp in the title role, and the one and only Elaine Paige as Queen Rat! Julian Clary also returns, alongside, Gary Wilmot, Emma Williams, Nigel Havers, Paul Zerdin and dance troupe Diversity and Ashley Banjo.
A story of courage and perseverance
An old English folklore tale from the middle ages, we follow the story of Dick Whittington, a young man who was orphaned at an early age. Living in a quiet village, he plans to head to a place called London, as he has heard people describe it as being "paved with gold". Hoping to mine as much gold as possible from these streets, he heads off to the city with his beloved cat - only to find that reality is very different.
Taken in by a kindly merchant, he sells his cat to help the man control the mice on his trading ship; Dick is bullied relentlessly by the household's cook, and he is plagued by mice. But when the merchant returns, he has news for Dick that turns his life around completely - and a very special friend who is glad to see him.
