Talegate Theatre Productions partners again with Aberdeen Arts Centre to present the magical Dick Whittington pantomime this year.

Aberdeen Arts Centre Sets Stage for Dick Whittington Pantomime

Okay, so we’re not yet in June and we’re already thinking about Christmas…but…Aberdeen Arts Centre has announced its 2024 pantomime, Dick Whittington. Tickets for the show are already on sale and it’s worth getting in there early for what is set to be a dazzling holiday treat.

Talegate Theatre Productions returns this year for the production, and partners with Aberdeen Arts Centre for the fifth year to present another festive show. Dick Whittington promises to whisk audiences away on an extraordinary journey along with his clever cat. They’ll venture to a city rumoured to have streets paved with gold.

The pair soon find themselves up against Queen Rat, who has overrun the city with fear and fleas, helped by her army of pesky minions. This twist sets the stage for a classic pantomime filled with adventure, humour, and the timeless battle between good and evil.

Dazzling Dances, Delightful Surprises, and a Dash O’ Doric

The production is set to be a festive highlight, complete with songs, slapstick comedy, and the enchanting magic of traditional pantomime. It’s designed to captivate audiences of all ages, from children to those young at heart, as they join Dick Whittington on a swashbuckling adventure across the seas and tackle the challenges thrown their way.

The show promises dazzling dances, delightful surprises, and a dash o’ doric, so everyone will leave with a smile. It’s the perfect holiday outing for families looking to embrace the festive spirit and enjoy the joy and laughter that only a well-crafted pantomime can provide.

With summer still in full swing and the holiday season feeling very far away, Aberdeen Arts Centre encourages people to book early to secure their spot for this spellbinding adventure. Dick Whittington celebrates the magic of storytelling and the festive season at one of Aberdeen’s most beloved cultural venues.

Dick Whittington runs from Sat 30th November until Tuesday 24th December. There is a BSL-interpreted performance on Saturday 14th December. Book your tickets now at Aberdeen Arts Centre.
