Sat 22 Dec 18 - Sat 5 January 18
Dick Whittington arrives in London Town seeking fame and fortune. Here he meets a magical cat, with a talent for catching rats that overrun the streets. These talents soon earn Dick a job working in Alderman Fitzwarren's shop and when he falls in love with Alice, the boss's daughter, things are really looking up!
With a steady job and his cat ridding London of rats it looks like his dreams are coming true, but King Rat - and his army of rascally rodents - has other ideas. He hatches a plan that will soon have Dick fighting to save his good name, win back the heart of his true love and save the world from rat domnation!
There'll be old favourites and new faces as the Dreams'n'Wishes Team once again bring their traditional blend of songs, laughter and warm hearted family fun to the best little panto in Milton Keynes.
