So you think panto season is finally over? Oh no, it’s not! Get that fizzing festive fun feeling right back with the Eastbourne Stagers and Dick Whittington who are soon to arrive at the Royal Hippodrome Theatre on their way to the golden streets of London.

However as well as meeting the hero Dick (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 wasn’t daunting enough for our hero, the mixed up stories means panto favourite 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 and all of the characters would love you to bring your teddy bears to join the teddy bear picnic.

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 01323 802020.
