Christmas, Pantomime, Family 11 November 2017 - 13 January 2018

An Oldham Coliseum Production
Dick Whittington


The North West's favourite pantomime is packed with laugh-out-loud gags, thigh slapping songs, and a generous helping of "it's behind you's"! OH YES IT IS.

Poor young lad Dick Whittington lives in the country but wants a life of adventure. He journeys to seek his fame and fortune in London with just his rat-catching cat as his only friend. Are the city's streets paved with gold? Will his path to the happily-ever-after be an easy one?

Dick Whittington has fabulous costumes, glitz and glamour, silliness and slapstick and hit songs to sing along to. This pantomime appeals to ALL the family, from kids to not-so-grown-up grown-ups. A great way to celebrate Christmas with friends and family.
