Prime Panto

We had a great time at the Cambridge Arts Theatre for the performance of Dick Whittington. There were traditional panto elements, songs and jokes. How times have changed though: one of the mooted punishments for King Rat was to be made Speaker of the Commons.

The Dame, Brad Fritt, held the whole thing together with sparkling turns from a great cast including Julia Buckfield as Dick and James Hirst as King Rat. And what a rat.

This was great family entertainment. The run lasts until 17th January, so there’s still time to see it.
