Following last year’s record-breaking production of Aladdin attended by nearly 120,000 people, Birmingham Hippodrome will once again play host to another unmissable pantomime. This year’s festive extravaganza will see legendary showman and star of Doctor Who and Torchwood, John Barrowman take on the title role of Dick Whittington.
Joining John on stage this Christmas will be Britain’s favourite soap star ‘baddie’ Steve McFadden in the role of the dastardly King Rat. Adding a touch of West End sparkle to proceedings, actress and singer Jodie Prenger stars as Fairy Bow Bells. She will be joined by legendary comedy duo, The Krankies as Councillor and Jimmy Krankie. Back for a fourth year running, Hippodrome favourite Matt Slack returns to make Birmingham audiences roll in the aisles with his hilarious physical comedy and quick wit in the role of Idle Jack. Completing the cast and also returning after last year’s appearance in Aladdin is Birmingham’s favourite panto dame Andrew Ryan, who will don even more of his amazing frocks in the role of Sarah the Cook.
The Pantomime runs from Mon 19 Dec 2016 until Sun 29 Jan 2017. You can find out more info on the Birmingham Hippodrome Theatre website: http://www.birminghamhippodrome.com/whats-on/
