About the Show/Event

Information for Dick Whittington and His Cat at Hackney Empire, Outer London (Panto). A new adaptation set in Post-War Britain. In Jamaica, young ?Dickens' Whittington is boarding the Empire Windrush, chasing the dream of a new life and seeking to make his fortune in the gold-paved streets of glorious London. Little does he know, magic awaits him and his enchanted feline friend far across the ocean... He'll embark on the adventure of a lifetime: reuniting with his Mum, fighting rodent royalty, meeting an eccentric fairy and winning the heart of his true love - all whilst trying to find fame and fortune. A dazzling Hackney-style reimagining of this classic rags-to-riches tale, bursting with laugh-out-loud topical gags, knockabout comedy, show-stopping song and dance numbers, the most boo-able baddies and enough festive cheer to fuel a ship half way round the world.
Producer Hackney Empire. Author Susie McKenna. Author Steven Edis. Director Susie McKenna. Music Steven Edis.
