As About My Area writes, “if you are in need of an injection of festive spirit then Fareham has it in buckets”. With “colourful costumes, fantastic dancers and even a saxophone-playing cockney fairy“ the show can “get even the biggest of humbugs feeling festive and merry“.
And there’s more! The Southern Daily Echo writes that Dick Whittington is a “cracking show” packed with “madcap japes”, praising the “highly polished and enjoyable performance”. Todd Carty gives “the performance of a consummate professional“ as King Rat, while Lloyd Warbey is a “likeable, lively Idle Jack”.
Portsmouth.co.uk couldn’t agree more, writing that Todd Carty had the audience “dancing in the aisles“ by the end of the show, while Lloyd Warbey’s “cheerful and enthusiastic as Idle Jack were enjoyed by all ages“
In 2015, the streets of Fareham were paved with gold as Dick Whittington took to the stage. Jam-packed with show-stopping songs and dazzling dance routines, knockabout comedy and bags of audience participation, this swashbuckling adventure quickly became another Ferneham Hall hit!
Todd Carty (EastEnders, Dancing on Ice) starred as evil King Rat and Art Attack’s Lloyd Warbey returned to play Idle Jack, while Mark Siney transformed himself into Sarah the Cook.
Set on the treets of London, where anything and everything is possible, Dick Whittington was a bobby dazzler of a panto that opened to glittering reviews!
