CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
About the Show/Event
Information for Dick Whittington - The Pompey Panto! at Kings Theatre Portsmouth, Southsea (Panto). Join our hero Dick Whittington on his thrilling quest to find adventure, fame and fortune in the glittering streets of London. Will he be able to defeat villainous rodent Queen Rat, save the city and win the hand of his love, Alice? Get ready to follow your dreams as this classic tale is re-imagined for our annual fun-filled pantomime. Expect Pompey's much-loved mix of songs, bonkers humour, stunning sets and don't forget the hilarious 12 Days of Christmas (with those all-important toilet Rolls) all wrapped up in a magical festive treat for all ages. We are limiting the audience numbers to 400 per show to comply with social distancing and if the government relax off the rules we will extend the capacity.
