In the village of Ample Bottom, strange things are occurring… there’s a magic cow, magic beans and the villagers keep disappearing!
Jack, Sally, Widow Pott and Daisy the cow adventure up the beanstalk (yes, it’ll grow on stage before your very eyes!) to defeat the evil Giant Blubberguts and rescue Jill from Grotweasel’s clutches. But will Jack win his girl’s heart and the riches he so badly needs? Will good prevail over evil?

Take a look at what NODA thought of our last pantomime, Cinderella – http://www.nomadtheatre.com/noda-review-cinderella/
The origins of the story of “Dick Whittington” will not be found in any book of fairy tales. The pantomime is the only one based on a true subject. There actually was a Richard Whittington, and he did become (Lord) Mayor of London in the late 14th and early 15th centuries.
Dick Whittington is a poor boy who has travelled to London to seek his fame and fortune. He has been told that “The streets are paved with gold”. He arrives penniless, and without a friend in the world.
In the pantomime it is often the Fairy – Fairy Bow Bells who introduces “Tommy” the cat to Master Whittington. He now has a true friend, but what he and Tommy want most is to earn an honest living.
Dick Whittington and Tommy the Cat are invited on board the ship to seek their fame and hopefully their fortune. A great storm brews up. The ship is in danger and the characters are washed ashore-bedraggled, wet and lost. The Dame, Idle Jack, the Captain and the Mate, and finally Dick and Tommy arrive safe and sound.
Will Dick find any treasure on the island? How will they get back to London?
Join us and you’ll find out… Oh, yes you will!
