Dick Whittington: Stamford Pantomime Players
Pantomime, Childrens, Family, Theatre
After last year’s successful Pantomime - Sleeping Beauty - Stamford Pantomime Players brings you.... Dick Whittington, with a new Director at the helm. Nicola Sandall recently directed the sold out RMT production of Legally Blonde over in Uppingham, and is very excited to bring you this year's tale.
This is the family friendly story of Dick from Gloucester, who goes to London to seek his fame and fortune. Along with his faithful feline companion, he battles King Rat and his army of “Ratlings”, takes a “Sea voyage” to visit foreign shores, and of course falls in love!
But will Dick get the girl? Will they survive the sea journey? Will King Rat seize the day, or will Dick, assisted by the fairy, come to the rescue? With comic relief from Idle Jack and the lavish Dame, this 70+ strong cast from our local community bring you a show full of singing, dancing, fun, frivolities, a singing parrot and a Dancing Camel, if we can squeeze it in! (And you might get to meet the newest member of SPP!).
A show not to be missed.
