Get set for Dick Whittington at The Beehive

Honiton Community Theatre Company’s 2020 pantomime is Dick Whittington.

Considered one of the oldest and best-loved pantomimes of all time, it promises to be a fitting follow up to last year’s well-received panto Cinderella.

The traditional storyline, by Gail Lowe, charts the adventures of Dick and his friends as they travel from London to Morocco in search of fame and fortune.

Meet entertaining new characters along with favourites like Kitty, Sarah the Cook, King Rat and the Sultan.

Alderman Fitzwarren and his motley crew are sailing for Morocco when King Rat manages to sink the ship on the shores of the Sultan’s private beach. There follows a misguided escape attempt by our heroes culminating in an exciting showdown in King Rat’s Lair.

This production is already being billed as a fun-filled panto from start to finish – with a cat, a camel and lots of laughs.

Shaun Bonetta is the director with Ian Crew musical director. Choreographer is Sarah Pottinger.

Performances run from February 18 to 22 inclusive and start at 7pm. A matinee, on Saturday, February 22, will start at 2pm.

Tickets are on sale now – adults £14, under 16s £8.
