Panto is in town – Oh Yes It Is!

By timesecholife on in Featured News

A TOWN'S theatre group will be presenting their latest production this week. Cheadle Amateur Theatrical Society (CATS) will be performing their family pantomime, Dick Whittington, at the Cheadle Community Theatre, this week. Written by Ian Wood and directed by Rebekah Snow, CATS are hoping for an “entertaining and hilarious four-night run.”

Dick Whittington, played by Caroline Stokes, and his feline pal, Kitty, played by Charlotte Potts, will be embarking on an adventure that takes them from Little Chaydul in the Moors to London, where it is said that the streets are paved with gold.
However, Dick’s arch nemesis, King Rat, played by Jason Greenwood, and his Ratty Henchmen (Joey O’Shea and Brandon Stubbs) are at hand to scupper Dick and Kitty’s journey.
All is not lost though, as Dick and Kitty find themselves under the protection of the magical Fairy Bo’belle, played by Alice Foggarty.
The travellers also come to benefit from the raucous hospitality Dame Beyoncè Bun (Ian Wood) and her children Crusty (Sara Walker) and Creamy (Brad Goodfellow).
Love is in the air too for Dick and comes in the form of the aristocratic Alice Spooner Fitzwarren (Amii Sawyer). The situation soon changes however, when Dick is accused of theft.
Consequently, he stows away on a ship, gets caught up in a storm and is shipwrecked in the Kingdom of Oohvahvoo.
The panto will be performed at Cheadle Community Theatre, The Cheadle Academy, Station Road, Cheadle from tonight – Wednesday, February 20 to Saturday, February 23.
Tickets are priced at £10 for adults and £8 for concessions, and are available online at or from the following retailers: Xtra Clean Dry Cleaners, Crafty Urchins and The Cheadle and Tean Times’ offices.
Alternatively, card payments will be accepted on the door or you may call Stephen on 07494 808299 for tickets.
Performances, which are set to keep to the true pantomime traditions of jokes, laughter, singing, dancing and audience participation; begin at 7pm with doors opening at 6.30pm.
