"slick, smart and big-hearted ... the purrr-fect performance from beginning to end!" - NE Lifestyle Magazine

"absolutely superb" - NETheatre

"loads of laughs" - Break A Leg

Join local lad Dick Whittington and his magical cat on an action-packed, fun-filled adventure at the People’s Theatre this Christmas!

When Dick arrives in London he’s hoping to find fame, fortune and the streets paved with gold.

The last thing he expects is to end up on a toe-tapping, bell-ringing, swashbuckling adventure that takes him from Heatonia to the shores of Morocco!

The People’s Panto has become something of a local legend in recent years, with last year’s Cinderella selling out and audience comments including “a wonderful show” and “massively fun and pleasingly extravagant”.

This year’s DICK WHITTINGTON promises to be just as much fun, so don’t delay if you want to book your seat for the hottest ticket in Heaton!
