Dick’s in panto – oh yes, he is!

Manchester Evening News - - NEWS -

DICK Whit­ting­ton is com­ing to Old­ham this Christ­mas.

This year’s pan­tomime at the Coli­seum Theatre will tell the story of the poor young lad and his rat-catch­ing cat, who set off to find fame, for­tune and ad­ven­ture in Lon­don.

But the path to hap­pily-ev­er­after isn’t al­ways that easy, and King Rat hatches an evil scheme to get Dick out of his city.

The Coli­seum’s tra­di­tional pan­tomime has been en­ter­tain­ing fam­i­lies for gen­er­a­tions, and this year’s show prom­ises to be packed with gags, thigh-slap­ping songs, and gen­er­ous help­ings of all-im­por­tant au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion.

The Coli­seum’s pan­tomime dame, Fine Time Fon­tayne, is back and will be joined on stage by Simeon Truby, ev­ery­one’s favourite silly billy Richard J Fletcher, and top singing fairly Liz Car­ney.

Dick Whit­ting­ton will be on from Saturday, Novem­ber 11, to Saturday, Jan­uary 14.
