The ultimate rags to riches story comes to Bristol Hippodrome this Christmas in the magical family pantomime Dick Whittington, led by soap-sensation and musical theatre star Shane Richie.
Bristol Hippodrome’s panto will bring the set, costumes and staging previously seen in Qdos Entertainment’s acclaimed production at the London Palladium to the City with a brand-new script. The much-loved story of Dick Whittington outwitting King Rat, winning Alice’s hand in marriage and becoming Lord Mayor of London will be brought to life with comedy, spectacle, live music and plenty of audience participation.
Having established himself as one of the nation’s favourite soap stars, Shane Richie has won numerous awards and millions of fans for his portrayal of Albert Square’s loveable landlord Alfie Moon in EastEnders. The King of the East End will hear the familiar peel of Bow Bells starring as our hero Dick, seeking his fame and fortune on the rat-infested streets of London this festive season.
One of the UK's most popular performers, famed for his song and dance routines and more recently, his portrayal of cockney geezer Alfie Moon on top soap EastEnders, proving that there's an accomplished actor inside him.
