Totally trad panto season – behind you

Love the totally trad style Panto, dames, behind yous and sing alongs? Then the Lyric in Hammersmith serves up a pretty excellent one every year. Dick Whittington and his Cat will be treading the boards down Hammersmith way this year looking for pavements made of gold. Opens 22nd November – 3rd January and it is penned by local playwright Tom Wells who wrote last year’s  Lyric panto and the successful plays Our New Girl and Jumpers for Goalposts – which both premiered at the Bush. The cat (pic) is looking quite like a rellie of Garfield’s.  lyric
