Following the huge popularity of Cinderella in 2016, the London Palladium will once again hold the West End’s leading pantomime spectacular during Christmas 2017 as Dick Whittington returns to the London stage.
With an exciting, hilarious and enchanting new version of the classic tale, this is set to be one of the highlights of the London’s festive offerings in 2017. Produced by Qdos Entertainment, the biggest producers of pantomime in the world and the team behind last year’s massively successful Cinderella, as well as over 650 other spectacular pantos, this is set to be yet another runaway success.
Although the all-star cast is still yet to be announced, you can expect only the best, as the cast of last year’s London Palladium panto included greats from the world of stage and screen, including Paul O’Grady, Amanda Holden, Julian Clary, Lee Mead and West End superstar Natasha J Barnes.
Qdos Entertainment’s 2016 show was the first time in 29 years that a pantomime was performed at the London Palladium, with the last silly spectacular playing in 1987, starring Barbara Windsor in Babes in the Woods. Due to the huge success of Cinderella they are on their way to establishing a brilliant new tradition of exciting, adventurous and hilarious West End pantomimes.
Dick Whittington tells the story of how a plucky youngster managed to his poverty-stricken childhood and make his fortune by battling with rats with his trusted cat.
Set to be one of the most popular shows this year, make sure to book early to get the best seats and avoid disappointment, for this festive spectacular that is the perfect Christmas outing for all the family.
