Pantomime – Dick Whittington at Buxton Opera House

Share With Friends

Panto favourite James Holmes is back by public demand and returns for Dick Whittington at Buxton Opera House this Christmas!

Hoping to find fame and fortune in London, our young hero Dick Whittington makes his way down Ye Olde M1 with nothing but a sandwich and a can-do attitude; but he’s out of luck until he meets a friendly cat with a knack for catching rats. As his cat gets to work ridding the city of its furry pests, it seems Dick’s dream will come true. Little does he know the scary King Rat – a nasty geezer with an army of rodents at his command – is getting ready to pounce.
