Fun for the whole family as we follow the adventures of young Dick Whittington, come to London to make his Fortune. Along the way he has to fight off the machinations of the Evil King Rat and his rat pack, aided only by his faithful (but sarcastic) talking cat, and the occasional magic of Fairy Bowbells. Will he win through and gain the heart of the beautiful Alice? And how much help will he get from Sara the Cook or Blackbeard the Pirate? Children will love his visits to a gypsy camp, a pirate ship, and the cooking pots of the native tribe of a desert island. And adults will enjoy the jokes and irreverence that are part of pantomime: "Highgate at last....and still no sign of Dick"
