Dick Whittington
The Lovelace Theatre group's annual panto this year is the firm family favourite Dick Whittington!

We follow the well known story of Dick aiming to seek his fortune in London, ably assisted by his cat Kitty.

In London Dick meets up with Mr Fitzwarren who offers him work, to rid his shop which is overrun with rats. However he comes up against a merchant called Mr R.O.Dent who claims to have seen Dick steal some money from him. All is not what it seems though since Mr R.O Dent is really a villain, ‘King Rat’ intent on destroying Dick and letting his rats run wild..
Meanwhile Dick signs on as a cabin boy aboard the good ship ‘Venus’ and sets sail hoping one day to clear his name and marry Mr Fitzwarren’s beautiful daughter Alice..
