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?

Starring Cambridge's #1 pantomime dame Matt Crosby (Dame Trott's Panto Palaver, Aladdin) as Sarah the Cook. Further casting to be announced!

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.
