Following their success in 2019 with 'Cinderella' at Trafalgar Studios and earlier this year with 'Death Drop' at the Garrick Theatre, TuckShop are back in the West End with a brand new drag pantomime this Christmas as Dick Whittington will run on selected dates from December 5th - January 9th at the Phoenix Theatre.
Dick Whittington is written by Gareth Joiner, and the cast of the show includes Cheryl Hole in the role of Dick Whittington, who featured in the first series of 'RuPaul’s Drag Race UK'. The cast also includes Kitty Scott Claus as The Spirit of Soho, and Choriza May as Queen Rat who also featured in 'Drag Race UK Series 3'.
The role of The Cat will be played by Holly Stars, with Yshee Black as Dame Sarah, Beau Jangles as The Mayor of Soho, and Ophelia Love as Villager Number 4. The full creative team and cast for the show are still to be announced.
The story of Dick Whittington follows the title character as he becomes the Mayor of London, while trying to win over the affections of Alice.
Performances of Dick Whittington are to showcase at the Phoenix Theatre on December 5th, December 12th, a two-show day on December 19th, January 4th, and January 9th as it shares the Phoenix Theatre with the hit musical Come From Away over the festive period.
