Dick Whittington at the Belgrade Theatre

IS it really Panto time already?

IS it really Panto time already?

King Rat and his mob have invaded and are hell bent on world domination.

Luckily our hero and his super side kick cartwheeling cat - Dick Whittington and Tom- are on their way to save the day. I know I don’t need to say much more about the plot as I’m sure you know the script of old.

A truly colourful festive production is full of laughs for all the family from the kiddiwinkles to granny and little bit of tongue in cheek humour for the mums and dads too that wasn’t close enough to the mark to cause any offence.

We went along without child accompaniment which my other half said she felt strange about beforehand but admitted afterwards she’d thoroughly enjoyed herself and didn’t realise it wasn’t just for the ankle biters. I have to agree.

There was plenty of the obligatory audience participation and one unfortunate soul dragged on stage for his 15 minutes of fame - twice. We’ll be making a date for next year for sure.

Dick Whittington will be on at the Belgrade until January 10.
