So, pantomime season is finally over? Oh no, it’s not as Eastbourne Stagers and Dick Whittington arrive at the Hippodrome Theatre in Eastbourne on their way to the gold streets of London.
However as well as the audience meeting the hero Dick, played by Chris Smith, the story book gets dropped and all of the stories get mixed up, causing Dick and his loyal cat (Anna Willmouth) to meet five damsels in distress in the form of Snow White (Hanna Turner), Red Riding Hood (Maia Buckthorpe), Goldilocks (Lucy Worrall), Cinderella (Josie Mead) and Sleeping Beauty (Molly Ireland) who are all on the search for a husband.
And if that’s not enough the mixed up stories means panto favourites the Ugly Sisters, the three bears and the big bad wolf also keep Dick on his toes.
Will Dick make it to London? Will he marry and become a prince and will any of our damsels live happily ever after? You can find out by joining the journey at the Hippodrome this week.
Direction and choreography are from former members Fiona Dean and Chloe Hurst.
Performances are Thursday (February 25) until Saturday (February 27) at 7.30pm with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30pm. Tickets are available from the Hippodrome Box Office on Eastbourne 726756.
