Dick Whittington And His Cat

We were super excited to head to Hackney Empire for another year exciting Christmas Panto. The story follows a young Dick Whittington who boards the Empire Windrush looking to start a new life in London.

But a magical adventure awaits, as Dick soon finds himself and his loyal cat on an adventure of a lifetime, from meeting a friendly fairy to fighting with queen rat and her rodents, and of course finding his true love.

Dick Whittington And His Cat is a hilarious fun-filled production, filled with funny jokes and laugh out loud one-liners, some which referenced currents events in the UK which were great and very well received by the audience.The songs choices were outstanding as were the dances which were delivered perfectly. I loved that the actors were enjoying performing as much as we were enjoying watching them.

Dick Whittington had everything you could wish for in a panto which made you want to join in with the audience participation songs and dances. This stunning performance features a dame like no other Clive Rowe as he stars in this stunning production as Sarah the Cook alongside the other talented actors the show was one I will not forget in a hurry.

Dick Whittington And His Cat is a classic rags-to-riches tale that the whole family will love. Check out Hackney Empire to buy your tickets. Dick Whittington And His Cat is on now until the 5th January 2020.
