Spotlight (IOW) Ltd Present Dick Whittington

Dick Whittington and his Cat. Shanklin Theatre’s 2017/18 Pantomime

From the award winning team that brought you last year’s record breaking ‘Cinderella’ comes the other famous rags to riches pantomime, Dick Whittington and his Cat. It is the story of the boy who came to London to seek his fortune and ended up being framed for a crime he didn’t commit, sailing across the world, becoming shipwrecked and battling an evil giant rat for control of the city.

We at Spotlight make sure that our pantomimes truly have something for everyone in the family and Dick Whittington, although perhaps not one of the best-known stories, is a perfect pantomime. The show takes you from bustling London Markets, to exotic desert islands with a hero you’ll love, a villain you can really boo and of course an all singing all dancing cat – the children will love her.

Our show will be filled with great songs to tap your feet to, hilarious comedy and slapstick, action, adventure, romance, special effects and of course plenty of audience participation.

So, come to Shanklin Theatre this Christmas holiday to see the liveliest pantomime of them all and discover if it’s possible that a boy who started with nothing could become the Lord Mayor of London. Looking at how elections have gone recently, anything is possible.
