Dick Whittington - The Rock'n'Roll Panto
7th December 2018 - 6th January 2019
Following the box office smash hit that was Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood, the production team at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre are pleased to announce the casts list for this season’s show, Dick Whittington The Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto.
The show will be the seventh consecutive rock ‘n’ roll panto at the Gatehouse Theatre since its return in 2012. This hilarious version of the traditional tale provides a rock ‘n’ rolling rollercoaster of an adventure story, as Dick Whittington and his trusty friend Tabby the cat dance and sing their way through London in search of fame, fortune, and Rock ‘n’ Roll, while attempting to outwit the evil King Rat and catch the eye of beautiful Alice.
The result is a fast, furious and funny feast of festive entertainment, designed to delight all the family, with a talented cast of actor/musicians serving up a wealth of rock and soul classic songs, including Uptown Girl; Band of Gold; Ain’t No Mountain High Enough; Walking on Sunshine and many, many more.
This year Stafford Gatehouse Theatre welcomes back Director Rob Salmon, Production Designer Deborah Mingham, Choreographer Verity Bray, and the Music Director of Stafford Festival Shakespeare’s Macbeth, David Hewson. Joining them will be a host of new (and one or two old) faces, comprising the cast of Dick Whittington…
