The traditional tale of Dick Whittington becoming thrice Lord Mayor of London. Fairy Bowbells helps Dick by sending him a feline companion, a Cat, to chase away the rats running free in London Town. There they meet Alderwoman Fitzwarren, who owns the local Emporium – where Sarah the Cook and Idle Jack work, and Dick falls for her daughter Alice.

But the Queen of the Rats has a different idea, she hates cats and decides to get rid of Dick and the Cat. The journey moves from London to Morocco where the Alderwoman, Alice, Sarah and some stowaways travel aboard the Saucy Sally to trade with the Sultan. Queen Rat unleashes Rats onto Morocco but who could possibly save the day – where is there a hero when you need one?

With Sarah the Cook and Idle Jack bringing lots of comedy and jokes, this fast paced panto will get you in the mood for Christmas, plus fantastic costumes and great musical numbers. You will enjoy it with all the family. Oh, yes you will!!
