This Christmas, theatre company eight-freestyle present Dick Whittington and his Amazing Cat at Contact.

Packed with shipwrecks, magic, pirates, ghosts, sharks and Freda the Cook’s terrible pies, Dick Whittington and his Amazing Cat is a treat for panto lovers of all ages.

Featuring the eight-freestyle multi-talented, all-singing, all-dancing cast, Dick Whittington and his Amazing Cat promises to be the funniest, flashiest and funkiest pantomime in town.
