The Uckfield Rugby Theatre Players tell the rags to riches story of Dick Whittington and his cat is a pantomime favourite with all ages and here is a new take on the story.
There are a few new characters as well as the established types, all developed from the fertile mind of writer Derek Tuffley, and brought to life by Sarah Cannon and her excellent cast. Musical Director Will Colley and Choreographer Carine Roberts are there again, all combining to deliver a very funny and rewarding experience for all the family. A great bunch of kids bring extra life to the production too.
