               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

We will be unable to fulfil any orders for printed scripts for the foreseeable future. Any orders placed will be cancelled and a refund made.
Orders for downloadable preview scripts and e-scripts are not affected.


Dick Whittington

    by Philip Meeks


Panto Script: 'Dick Whittington' by Philip Meeks

As the London bells chime out, join our hero Dick Whittington, outrageous Sarah the Cook, hilarious Idle Jack and Tommy the unforgettable mystical magical cat on the greatest of all pantomime adventures!

When Dick Whittington heads to London Town to seek his fame and fortune fate soon steps in. The streets mightn’t be paved with gold as he’s been led to believe, but when he encounters a stray moth-eaten moggy his luck begins to change. 

London is over run by vicious rats and Tommy the cat with his ratting prowess helps Dick land a humble job at the Fitzwarren Stores.  And now Dick’s life truly begins. But little does he know that under the watchful eye of the benevolent Fairy Bow Bells he’s on a magnificent quest and he’s got his work cut out!

He’ll defeat his mortal enemy King Rat, head for the High Seas, help Maneeta the Sultana of Morocco with an unfortunate infestation and fall in love with Alice the bosses daughter.  And he’ll need to fit all of this in before taking his place in history by becoming the most beloved Lord Mayor our nation’s capital has ever known.

This traditional take on the beloved pantomime classic features all the comic routines, slapstick, excitement and memorable moments this panto subject is known for.  It's guaranteed to help you create a professional class family friendly spectacle that will live on in the memories of your audience long after the good ship Naughty Nellie has sailed home.
