“If you are eager to see Ned Bennett’s production but don’t want to venture out then it will be available on the NT’s YouTube channel for free between December 23 and December 27. It’s the NT’s final gift to the nation before it starts its new subscription service. It’s good to see the NT stepping into the panto void created by the pandemic, and there is every chance that this will be the cat’s whiskers.”
Join Dick Whittington and friends on an adventure to save the true spirit of London as pantomime comes to the National Theatre for one year only.
In a newly transformed Olivier theatre, Ned Bennett directs this wild new version of the classic tale which has been freshly updated for 2020 by Jude Christian and Cariad Lloyd.
This hilarious and heartfelt panto is packed with the cheekiest of jokes, the chattiest of animals, the awesomest of songs and the messiest of silliness.
