The Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is excited to announce that next year’s fun-filled family pantomime will be Dick Whittington, playing from Friday 3 December 2021 to Sunday 9 January 2022.


Dick Whittington’s heading to seek his fame and fortune in that there London – he’s heard the streets are paved with gold. But when he gets there he can’t see the gold beneath the grime, and the evil King Rat is out to get him! With his loyal cat by his side will he be able to save the city? He’s going to need a little help from you to win the day.


With stunning sets, dazzling costumes, a thrilling live band, and slapstick silliness aplenty, it’s the purr-fect Christmas treat for the whole family.


Dick Whittington will be the Yvonne Arnaud’s second pantomime directed by the theatre’s Chief Executive and Director Joanna Read. The theatre’s 2020/21 pantomime was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however there will be still be plenty of festive magic this year with its enchanting production of The Snow Queen, running from Friday 11 to Thursday 24 December 2020.
