Our tale is set in olde Meavy where young Dick has travelled to in the hope of making his fortune. On his arrival he is befriended by a clever and beautiful cat and then he falls for the Alderwoman’s fair daughter Alice. Things are looking sweet for Dick but his good luck soon turns sour at the claws of the evil and prolific Queen Rat.
Warm up a chilly winter evening and come and meet Cecily the saucy Dame who is always on the look out for a handsome new husband – having worn the old one out. Meet the Captain of the Bunting Tosser and his motley crew, rats galore, exotic belly dancers and of course no panto would be complete without the magical help of a fairy and as for the Sultan – you ain’t seen nothing yet!
Will Dick’s dreams ever come true, will Cecily get her man – any man, will Queen Rat take over the world… Intrigued? Roll up and enjoy toe tapping music, barrels of laughs and family fun.
