Dick Whittington

Sat 2 December 2017 - Sun 7 January 2018

Co-written by Tony Lidington and Steve Bennett

Pantomime comes home to the Northcott with a spectacular new staging of Dick Whittington, starring Exeter’s most popular Dame – Steve Bennett and directed by one of the country’s leading pantomime directors, Tony Lidington.

With his faithful Puss by his side Dick leaves his Exeter home for the bright lights of London in search of fame and fortune. Follow his adventures as he reaches the big city and travels the high seas. Will Dick find his fortune? Can he and Puss defeat the evil villain King Rat and return home triumphant?

Expect plenty of audience participation, live music, magic, mayhem and lots of laughter – the perfect recipe for a family Christmas panto treat!
