Dick Whittington travels to Leigh

Take a journey with Turnpike Community Theatre to London this festive season in the magical pantomime adventure, Dick Whittington.

Having set out for London to seek his fortune, Dick Whttington and pantomime favourites Barrow Boy Billy and Dame Sarah are taking a detour through Leigh to take to the stage in Turnpike Community Theatre’s production which will be staged at The Turnpike (above Leigh Library) at the end of November.

After several months of rehearsing, members of Turnpike Community Theatre are excited to take to the stage with this Christmas production of Dick Whittington. This year’s production promises to be better than ever; complete with plenty of traditional panto humour, great music and dance to keep you entertained – oh yes it does!

Taking to the stage as Dame Sarah, Richard Pilkington said, “This is a great show with something for everyone. There is fun and laughter in every scene and something for the adults in the audience as well as the children. There is a great cast again this year who bring pantomime into the twenty first century and help to keep this tradition alive. If you’ve not already got your ticket you should get one now before they all sell out!”

Performances will be at The Turnpike, Civic Square, Leigh on Tues 28th November to Sat 2nd December at 7.15pm and a matinee on Saturday at 2.15pm. Tickets are priced £5, £4.50 (concessions) and £17 for a family ticket (2 adults & 2 children). Tickets are available online at www.turnpikecommunitytheatre.com. Please note, all tickets purchased on the door will be charged at £5.50 per person.
