Pantomime season will soon be here at The Octagon Theatre with what promises to be one of the most fun-filled pantomimes seen at the theatre in recent years – ‘Dick Whittington’.
Dick Whittington runs from Friday 9th December with the last show taking place in Sunday 1st January 2023. Once again, this fabulous production will be written by Paul Hendy, and produced by Evolution Productions – the same creative collaboration who are celebrating 10 years with The Octagon!
We are excited to welcome back familiar faces in the brilliantly funny Jack Glanville, Thom Bradford, Kathryn Nash and Gordon Cooper set to tread the boards at The Octagon. Jack and Gordon are very familiar here at The Octagon; Thom and Kathryn were both in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Nurse Nellie Saves Panto so will be familiar faces to some. This year we welcome to the stage for the first time the delightful Javana Forrest playing Alice and the dashing Daniel Parkinson, playing Dick Whittington. Completing the principal cast is local-born James Bamford who will be playing Tommy the Cat.
Tickets start from £16.00 with some brilliant family saver offers for some performances. With 42 shows to choose from, you really are spoilt for choice. Shows are selling out fast, with some already sold out, so grab your tickets now whilst you still can.
Martin Hacker, Marketing Manager for The Octagon Theatre and Westlands Entertainment Venue, said: “We are really excited to welcome Evolution Productions back for their 10th production here at The Octagon this year and we expect it to be the best yet. The highlight of the year is always our pantomime season as friends and families come together for their annual visit to the pantomime and share the laughter, joy and magic of live theatre. Nothing pleases us more when we see our patrons enjoying the show with friends and family, getting into the panto spirit and joining in. Our tickets are starting to get limited so we urge you to book now before it is too late.”

Originally pencilled to be performed in December 2020, we’ve waited long enough to follow our on-stage hero to seek his fame and fortune in London Town and be joined by the rest of the cast, where we will see plenty of shenanigans and mischief along the way.
