This ‘rags to riches’ story, the only panto based on an actual person, is an all-time favourite, never failing to draw the audience into its tale of a poor boy arriving in London to seek his fortune and his battle against the evil and devious King Rat... 

Follow Dick’s adventures as he overcomes a false accusation of theft, rids London and Morocco of their rats with the assistance of Tommy, his magical cat, and finally, wins the hand of the beautiful Alice. 

Hiss at the rats, cheer at the cat, whistle and stamp your feet Tommy will chase the rats out of the place and Dick will win Alice – how sweet!
The Dame is a scream, this panto’s a dream, something for every taste. The kids will have fun, so will Dad and Mum, so why are you waiting? Make haste. It’s tickets you’re needing so carry on reading the number to call (try online). The Box Office is waiting, we’re anticipating a rush so please don’t waste time.

Lettice and Lovage - 12-15 April 2015.

Lettice and Lovage is a very British comedy by Peter Shaffer. He wrote the play especially for Dame Maggie Smith after she challenged him to ‘write something for women’. So he did, and he cast Dame Maggie as Lettice. The play was a huge success, it ran for 768 performances at the Gielgud Theatre in London from 1987.

The action takes place in 3 primary locations. The Grand Hall, Fustian House – Wiltshire, Miss Schoen’s office at the Preservation Trust, London, and Lettice’s basement apartment in Earls Court.

Lettice is an expert on Elizabethan cuisine and medieval weaponry; she is a daffy enthusiast of history and theatre. As a tour guide of Fustian House (the least stately of stately homes in England) she theatrically embellishes its historical past, ultimately coming up on the radar of Lotte Schoen, an Official from the Preservation Trust. Neither impressed nor entertained by Lettice’s’ freewheeling history lessons, Schoen terminates her employment. Not one, however, to go without a fight, Lettice engages the stoic conventional Lotte in battle to the death of all that is sacred to the Empire and the Crown.

The tale of an unlikely friendship, with lots of Lovage.
