The Marlowe Theatre and Evolution Pantomimes present Dick Whittington.

The great British pantomime!

Don’t miss our fun-packed, family pantomime starring one of the UK’s most popular TV stars, Stephen Mulhern and Marlowe favourites, Ben Roddy and Lloyd Hollett.

The show will also feature the incredible Vladimir Georgievsky (Britain’s Got Talent) and a host of West End stars including John Barr (Les Mise´rables), Lisa Davina Phillip (Matilda) and Ben Carruthers (Wicked).

Once again, the show will be written and directed by Paul Hendy and brought to you by Evolution, the same team behind last year’s Box Office smash hit, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.

The show promises to be spectacular, top-quality family entertainment with the emphasis on strong casting, high production values and a genuinely funny script.

Last year’s pantomime was seen by over 96,000 people and some shows are already sold out so book early to avoid disappointment.
