- Written by: Roger Hall
- Directed by: Susan Wilson
- Circa One
- 14 November − 16 January
Look out behind you!
Get into the spirit of the season and join the fun at Circa's annual Christmas pantomime!
In a bygone era, long before the days of public transport, brave young Dick (and his Cat!) make their way to Wellington. There he works for a rich merchant - and falls in love with the merchant's daughter. But, just when the path of true love is running smoothly, Dick (and his Cat!) are sent away on a sailing ship to make the merchant's fortune...
And no matter where he travels, Dick cannot shake off his pantomime Dame mother - a "poor lonely widow woman". Ohhhhhhh!
The team that brought you Cinderella, Aladdin, Jack & the Beanstalk, and Red Riding Hood returns with another delightful treat for young and old.
