London's streets of gold are calling and, with his faithful cat by his side, our hero Dick goes searching for his fortune in the big city. But he won't make it without your help! Be there to cheer Dick on along his journey, 'boo' at the biggest baddie of all time - King Rat - and ‘ahh' at the object of Dick's affections, the beautiful Alice. Packed full of fabulous tunes, stunning dancing, fabulous costumes plus lots of festive sparkle and chances to join in, this is going to be one Christmas panto not to miss. Join Dick Whittington and friends on an adventure to save the true spirit of London as pantomime comes to the National Theatre for one year only. In a newly transformed Olivier theatre, Ned Bennett directs this wild new version of the classic tale which has been freshly updated for 2020 by Jude Christian and Cariad Lloyd. This hilarious and heartfelt panto is packed with the cheekiest of jokes, the chattiest of animals, the awesomest of songs and the messiest of silliness. This panto was originally commissioned by the Lyric Hammersmith.
