Dick Whittington,
Opera House Manchester

Dick Whittington Overview

Take the international TV and musical theatre star John Barrowman (Doctor Who, Torchwood, Arrow) and the comedy legends The Krankies, a magical 3D underwater journey and Qdos Entertainment, the world’s biggest pantomime producer and you have all the ingredients for the perfect pantomime, Dick Whittington.

A spectacle on par with any West End show in terms of scale and production values. Audiences can expect plenty of laughs, outrageous costumes, breath-taking special effects and hilarious entertainment for all the family when they join our hero Dick Whittington (and his faithful feline pal) as he seeks fame, fortune and happiness to become Lord Mayor of London.
