SMTC Presents Dick Whittington
A Pantomime For All The Family

28th – 31st January 2015

Families and theatre goers in Salford may be a little surprised by the latest pantomime offering from award winning Salford Musical Theatre Company as the annual community pantomime transports audiences back to 14th Century London town to recount the tale of 3 times Lord Mayor Dick Whittington and his magic cat.

SMTC have given the pantomime their usual twist on events with comic characters filling the stage including Rover – Dick’s magic cat, who has obviously been watching too many TV adverts and wants to be more dog!

Man mad Sarah the Cook wants to find a nice rich boyfriend, Idle Jack is lazily obsessed with roses and Alice Fitzwarren, who doesn’t even notice. Her father, Alderman Fitzwarren is fed up of his shop being plagued by rats, and so is Sheik Dabooty of Abu Dhabi, who could be a dead ringer for TV’s Celebrity Juice host Keith Lemon and there are plenty more surprises in store for the cast and audiences as the evil King Rat tries everything to stop Dick being made Lord Mayor of London, including framing Dick for a crime he did not commit and sending his hordes of ratlings to eat everyone’s sweets and generally cause havoc!
