Join us on a family pantomime adventure with Dick Whittington and his acrobatic cat as they journey from Poole to Olde London Town then across the sea seeking fame and fortune. After ‘Cinderella’ last year, prepare for an even bigger ‘wow’ with spectacular new scenery, sparkling costumes and special effects. Meet the magical Fairy Bow Bells and the hilarious Dame Dolly Donuts. Boo, cheer, laugh, sing along and don’t let King Rat become Lord Mayor!
Dick Whittington stars popular children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis who is no stranger to local audiences. In addition to playing the role of Dick Whittington he directs and writes the pantomime with actor Peter Duncan. This is the third year running that Duncan Reeves Productions has co-produced the Poole panto with Lighthouse, following the success of their productions of Aladdin and Cinderella.
Since making his name presenting from the ‘Broom Cupboard’ in the early 90s on Children’s BBC, Chris Jarvis has written and presented many programmes for young people and was one of the original line-up of CBeebies presenters. He can currently be seen on CBeebies co-presenting Show Me Show with Pui Fan Lee and will no doubt be joining in with Blue Peter’s 60th celebrations this year along with Peter who was a presenter of the show in the 1980s.
The puuuurfect Christmas treat for the whole family.
