Dick Whittington from The Shows Must Go On/National Theatre

The Shows Must Go On bring us a pantomime for the Christmas holidays (I’m trying to resist the temptation to say “Oh no they don’t”)

Watch the National Theatre’s production of Dick Whittington, a hilarious and heartfelt new version of the classic tale that’s packed with the cheekiest of jokes, the chattiest of animals, the awesomest of songs and the messiest of silliness. The pantomime has been freshly updated by Jude Christian and Cariad Lloyd for 2020.

Celebrate the joy and laughter that panto brings to thousands of families across the UK every year with the National Theatre and The Show Must Go On in our Great British Panto Party.

You can also get involved with the fun, with craft activities for the family using the National Theatre’s Panto Party Pack: https://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/sites/default/files/dick-whittington-panto-pack-v2.pdf

Dick Whittington is streaming for free and available on demand until midnight UK time on Sunday 27 December. You need to start watching by 9.45pm UK time on Sunday to be able to watch it all.
