Wolverhampton panto stars arrive in town on London red bus

Wolverhampton Grand Theatre’s panto stars have arrived in style, rolling into town on a London red bus, direct from the city where the streets are paved with gold!

Dick Whittington is the rags to riches story, taking the audience from London to Morocco, with Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas in the title role.

Ryan was joined by the Grand Theatre’s returning pantomime Dame, Ian Adams who plays Sarah The Cook, theatre star Julie Paton as the Spirit of the Bells – Fairy Bowbells, comedy impressionist Aaron James as Idle Jack and Jordan Ginger as Dick’s trusty feline sidekick.

They join Su Pollard as Queen Rat and Jeffrey Holland as Alderman Fitzwarren who were at the Grand Theatre in August to launch the pantomime.

In what promises to be another spectacular Grand Theatre pantomime and a 125th anniversary spectacular, audiences can join our hero as he seeks fame, fortune and happiness to become the Lord Mayor of London.

Dick Whittington will be another action-packed pantomime full of laughter, music and eye-popping special effects that audiences have come to expect of a Grand Theatre pantomime with Qdos Entertainment.

Tickets for Dick Whittington from Saturday 7 December 2019 – Sunday 12 January 2020 are now on sale. They can be booked in person at the theatre, by calling 01902 42 92 12 or online at grandtheatre.co.uk.
