Venue: Above the Stag
Above the Stag queer theatre in Vauxhall has outdone itself this year, with fabulous LGBTQ+ panto Dick Whittington: A New Dick in Town.
Their annual pantos are always a rude, riotous and even romantic take on traditional pantos, and it’s about as queer a night out as you could ever hope for.
Brace yourself for the official synopsis: Like many a gay country lad, Dick comes to the big city in search of men and money. But just as Londoners are getting back on their feet, dastardly mayoral candidate Queen Rat and her minions rise up to bite them in the ankles! When she frames Dick for a terrible crime, Dick stiffens himself for a great adventure. Can he clear his name, win back his boy and defeat Queen Rat before she brings London to its knees – and not in a good way?
Written by Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper with songs by Jon Bradfield, and directed by Andrew Beckett, the cast includes Matthew Baldwin as Sarah the Cook, Jonny Petyon-Hill as Dick Whittington, Keanu Adolphos Johnson as Alex Fitzwarren, Bradley Walwyn as Fitzwarren and Nikki Biddington as Queen Rat.Website & Booking
