Dick Whittington description

TuckShop are BACK in the West End for another hilarious all-drag panto this Christmas!

Join our hero Dick Whittington (Cheryl Hole) on his thrilling quest to find adventure fame and fortune in the glittering streets of Soho, with his feisty and funny pussy cat (Holly Stars). Will he be able to defeat villainous rodent Queen Rat (Choriza May), with the help of the Spirit of Soho (Kitty Scott Claus), save the city and win the hand of his love, the beautiful Alice?

Get ready to follow your dreams as this classic tale is re-imagined in TuckShop’s own way. Unlike any other pantomime you’ll see, written by Gareth Joyner, you’ll be gagging on Dick and his friends as they bring the spirit of Soho to the West End.

Best Panto so far

Thought the show was absolutely fabulous. The subtle rudeness, the flamboyant costumes and acting was tremendous. The cast was great, loved every single one of them. One of my all time favourite has to be Julian Clary he just makes it stand out. Well done I be definitely back next year.

Fantastic costumes.

Great show worth going. But the theatre the Palladium is old and needs a modernisation in the public parts. Toilets a disgrace. Out of 5 one was out of order!! Long long queues!!!

Sheer majestical magic

Amazing cast. Superb staging & special effects. Elaine Paige just needs to brush up on her lines!!! Would maybe play Memories or Don't Cry for me Argentina to the younger generation so they know who she is & why she sings to those particular tunes....

A riot

A riot of colour, jokes, performances everything was just perfect. Standing ovation so well deserved. Huge congratulations to everyone front and back stage all involved, nothing could have been bettered. In my 71 years I have seen a panto practically every year but this production is by far the best I have ever seen.

London Pantomime to feature Julian Clary... and Donald Trump!

by Phil Willmott | Friday, April 21 2017, 14:36

Dick Whittington We’re barely into Spring but it’s already time to look forward to Pantomime, the UK’s traditional Christmas theatre treat. Two PR firms have announced festive productions in the last few days, one gigantic the other niche.

Let’s start with the giant. Last Christmas panto expert Michael Harrison brought large scale, big budget pantomime back to the London Palladium where it used to reign supreme in the 1950s and 60s. His Cinderella had an all star line up, was nominated for an Olivier Award and although rumours persisted that they were struggling to sell enough seats at the high ticket prices it’s widely regarded as having been a success.
