Additional Info

This sparkling and fun filled version of the traditional tale of Dick Whittington is delightfully brought to life by the pantomine specialist John Morley. All the favorite characters are here - Tommy the Cat, Alice Fitzwarren, Sarah the Cook, King Rat, the Fairy of the Bells, and of course, Dick Whittington himself. The pantomime offers scope for lavish production but, if required, the staging can be very simple without in any way spoiling either the comedy routines or the telling of the famous story.

“John Morley, the pantomime specialist, knows how to bend the pantomime rules without breaking them and evokes a genuine sense of good felowship...he brings in the unexpected...the story of (Dick Whittington) is well told while being a glorious mishmash of stand-up comedy, extravaganza, topicalities and audience contact...it brought the house down...” 
– The Times

Reviews from the San Francisco bay area said: "played to sellout crowds...I encourage you to take the entire family to this show...a madcap blend of song dance, stand up comedy and vaudeville...skillfully designed to appeal to adults as well as children...the script is adapted to the place where it is being done.
