Prepare yourself for an adventure paved with gold this Christmas as Cambridge Arts Theatre’s award-winning pantomime returns with the purrr-fect festive treat: Dick Whittington and his Cat!

Fed up living life with empty pockets, our plucky hero Dick Whittington arrives in London seeking fame, fortune, adventure… and his one true love! Alongside his trusty companion Tommy the Cat, Dick thinks luck is finally on his side, until a despicable Rat arrives in town determined to unleash hell across the capital. Can you help Dick and his friends conquer the villain and save the day?

Our spectacular cast includes Cambridge's #1 dame Matt Crosby and BBC One's Our Girl star Rolan Bell, returning after his 'Best Villain' win at The Pantomime Awards 2022. Joining them will be Adrian Grove (Les Miserables, South Pacific), Mandi Symonds (Witness for the Prosecution), Ruby Ablett (The Ocean at the End of the Lane), Luke Baker (Everybody's Talking About Jamie), Nichole Bird (The Comedy of Errors) and Charlie Cameron (The Ocean at the End of the Lane).

A magical rags to riches tale, Dick Whittington and his Cat is brimming with side-splitting jokes, singalong songs and traditional panto mayhem for the whole family to enjoy.

Book today… Adventure awaits!

Dick Whittington and his Cat is directed by Michael Gattrell and written by Al Lockhart-Morley.
