Synopsis


In Jamaica, young Dick Whittington is boarding a boat; chasing the dream of a new life in the gold-paved streets of glorious London.


Little does he know, magic awaits him and his enchanted feline friend far across the ocean … he'll embark on the adventure of a lifetime: fighting rodent royalty, meeting an eccentric fairy and winning the heart of his true love - all whilst trying to find fame and fortune.


Join us for a dazzling Hackney-style reimagining of this classic rags-to-riches tale, bursting with laugh-out-loud topical gags, knockabout comedy, show-stopping song and dance numbers, the most boo-able baddies and enough festive cheer to fuel a ship half way round the world.
