Dick Whittington and his Cat - Family Pantomime

This February half term The Company of Four present Dick Whittington and his Cat, a fabulous traditional family panto.

The Company of Four are a local amateur entertainment group who have staged pantos, musicals and song & dance shows here at The Riverside for many years. 

The plot is loosely based on the true story of Dick Whittington who became Lord Mayor of London three times back in the 1300’s. Dick Whittington arrives in London with no money, no friends and nowhere to sleep. He helps out the wealthy store owner, Alderman Fitzwarren, who has an infestation of rats in his store cellar. Dick Whittington falls in love with the Alderman’s daughter, Alice, and is offered a place to stay at the store until he finds something a little more permanent. All is going well until he is framed for stealing the Alderman’s takings from his safe. He is sent on his way, but returns when he hears the bells of Bow Church chiming from Highgate Hill, telling him to return to London and seek his fame and fortune.
