DICK WHITTINGTON, 8TH-30TH DECEMBER 2018
Hoping to find fame and fortune in London, our young hero Dick Whittington makes his way down Ye Olde M1 with nothing but a sandwich and a can-do attitude; but he’s out of luck until he meets a friendly cat with a knack for catching rats. As his cat gets to work ridding the city of its furry pests, it seems Dick’s dream will come true. Little does he know the scary King Rat - a nasty geezer with an army of rodents at his command - is getting ready to pounce.
Dick Whittington is one of the nation’s best loved rags-to-riches stories. Book early and make sure your family has the perfect seats to enjoy our record-breaking East Midlands pantomime.
Set in Derbyshire Peaks, Buxton is a beautiful spa town and its shops, restaurants and handsome stone-fronted heritage buildings are at their sparkling best around Christmas time. Enjoy the picturesque 57 min rail journey from central Manchester or get there by car. Contact Buxton Opera House to make a booking now or click here to read previous pantomime reviews.
