Who doesn't love a good old Panto at Christmas?
Review and Photograph by Jo Forrest.

DICK Whittington, written by Eric Potts, lasts for just over 2 hours and we are treated to a brilliant 3D underwater scene, with more than just a hint at Finding Nemo, just before the 2nd ˝. Some of the best comic performances for the night come from Idle Jack, played by Liam Mellor and Sarah The Cook, played by Eric Potts. Although I did think at times some of the innuendo was perhaps a little too inappropriate for the younger audience, who hopefully didn't ask to many awkward questions.

The leading roles were played by Emmerdale's Kurtis Stacey and Leanne Campbell, who take us on their journey of romance as Dick arrives in Liverpool from Manchester seeking his fortune with his Faithful Cat Tommy, played by Haley Good and watched over by the lovely Sally Lindsey who plays the motherly character of Fairy Fizackerly.

Although 1 of the less traditional shows, Dick Whittington is still a firm favourite and was a definite hit with the audience. A bight a colourful set, with elaborate costumes and a brilliant cast, this show did not fail to deliver. Full of laughs and catchy songs it had the whole audience joining in. It has all the right ingredients for a great panto, romance, comedy, great songs and not to mention the baddie who in this case is King Rat, played by Warren Donnelly. 

Dick Whittington is on at the Liverpool Empire Theatre until 3 January 2016.  This show is 5 out of 5 so don't miss your chance to see it!
