This December the road to Contact is paved with Panto Gold!
The Bells are ringing out for a sure-fire Christmas hit show at CONTACT this Christmas as eight-freestyle present: ‘Dick Whittington and his Amazing Cat!’
This upbeat, modern production of the classic rags-to-riches story tells the tale of young Dick Whittington and his loyal cat ‘Scratch’ on their exciting quest for fame and fortune. Can Dick defeat evil King Rat and his rat hordes? Can he win the love of the beautiful Alice Fitzwarren? Can he survive shipwrecks, magic, pirates, ghosts, sharks and Freda the Cook’s terrible pies?
Featuring a multi-talented, all-singing, all-dancing cast (no wooden reality-TV stars here), it really is a treat for children of all ages…even grown-up ones!
We are proud to be bringing what has become known as ‘Manchester’s Local Panto’ to Contact this December.
Sign up for ‘Team Cat’…and join us on the road from Manchester to London Town for the funniest, flashiest funkiest Pantomime of them all!
