ROYALTY THEATRE’S 2017 PANTOMIME IS DICK WHITTINGTON
The Royalty Theatre will see out 2017 with their annual family pantomime, and this year it is Dick Whittington.
The much-loved family classic follows the story of Dick Whittington and his cat, who travel to London in the hope of seeking Dick’s fortune. Along the way he meets the beautiful Alice, but also the evil King Rat – whose villainous plans soon cause trouble for Him.
Helen Bowie writes and directs the pantomime, following her overwhelming success last year with Aladdin. She says, “I love everything about panto and, after the success of last year, the Royalty have very kindly asked me back, which is another dream come true. We are having a riot in rehearsals and I hope that the audience enjoy watching it as much as we enjoy performing it!”
Award-winning panto actor Andrew Barella is once again in the comedy role as Idle Jack, and he’s joined this year by David Armstrong as Dame Sarah, Olivia Bowern as Dick, Lauren Hawkes as Alice and James Errington as Dick’s cat.The pantomime runs from 7th to 17th December, with evening performances Tuesdays to Saturdays at 7.15pm, and afternoon shows on Saturdays and Sundays at 2.15pm.
Tickets can be purchased in advance from the theatre website www.royaltytheatre.co.uk
