‘Dick Whittington’ heads to stage for GADOC’s 60th panto
Rehearsals for the GADOC pantomime are coming to an end, with the show opening on the Beau Sejour stage on Boxing Day.
‘Dick Whittington’ is the company’s 60th panto and will run until the 5th January.
There will be thirteen performances overall, with tickets selling fast.
Jodie Hicks is playing the title role, and explains what it’s all about:
‘It’s the story of Dick Whittington who goes to London to find a job and along his way, bumps into a magical cat!
‘They form a friendship and between them they defeat the rats and the King Rat and eventually, Dick Whittington becomes Lord Mayor of London.
‘It’s definitely a very family fun pantomime with lots of interaction with the audience and the children.
‘It’s got lots and lots of lively songs in it – both new songs and some older songs that the older members of the audience might know.’
Some tickets are still available and you can get hold of some here.
