THE streets and sewers of London face a plague of rats, until Dick Whittington arrives in town to seek his fortune.

And Dick Whittington is arriving in Burnham-on-Sea next month thanks to Re:ACT theatre and their exciting Christmas pantomime.

Pantomime mayhem awaits with a saucy cook, magical Fairy Bowbells and a shipwrecked crew, as well as toe-tapping songs and a bucket full of rhyme.

Find out whether Dick Whittington will win the heart of Alice Fitzwarren, or whether he will defeat the meddling King Rat. And of course, who will be your next Lord Mayor of London.

This is The West Country:

You can enjoy Dick Whittington at The Princess Theatre in Burnham-on-Sea from Wednesday, December 4 until Saturday, December 7.
