Event: -
Otterbourne Drama Group are presenting their 38th pantomime and this year's show for the festive season is Dick Whittington. Dick Whittington is a well known pantomime story that covers a great adventure from London to Morocco by a young man and his mischievous cat. The show will be on Friday, Saturday and Sunday on January 12-14 and January 19-21, with evening performances every day at 7:30 and matinee performances also on Saturday and Sunday.

The story of Dick Whittington is often known as Dick Whittington and his Cat. It is a British folk lore tale based around the life of Richard Whittington who would one day become the Lord Mayor of London. Dick is a poor orphan boy who heads to London to make his fortune as he hears the streets are 'paved in gold'. Instead of gold he finds a room invested with rats and mice, but luckily his cat is there to keep the rodents at bay. Eventually it would be this cat's abilities that would lead Dick to his riches. The truth in the story remains debated, the tale sometimes being far more interesting than the truth.

The pantomime at Otterbourne Village Hall features a modern script of the old folk tale, and in true pantomime style it will be full of twists and turns and many laughs.

Tickets are 9 and can be purchased online or by calling the box office on 0752 672 8781. The Otterbourne Village Hall is located in Winchester, about 14 miles from Southampton.
