Dick Whittington -

Production photos by Tony O’Connell


‘A particular talent in the show is Mike Slader, whose transformation into a punk rat bassist is uncannily dedicated to Sid Vicious.’   Entertainment Focus

‘The musician-actors kick off with a raucous Tutti Frutti and are adept throughout at switching between their twin roles effortlessly……One particularly enjoyable moment is when the punk rock Rats in their lair break out into Pretty Vacant - who’d have thought you’d ever hear a Sex Pistols track in a panto? And that is what makes this show stand out from the panto crowd.’

The Stage

‘Five Stars - If there were Oscars for pantomime then the Dick Whittington would scoop the board in every category…. But what sets this production apart is the multi-talented cast who slip seamlessly between their dual roles as actors and musicians providing the live accompaniment…. Dick Whittington has a great feel good factor element and hits that have both young and old dancing in the aisles. There’s no wonder it’s tipped to become the best panto in town!’  Leeds Guide
