AN ADULTS-ONLY pantomime is coming back to Whitchurch and is hoping to raise money for a daycare centre at the same time.

The show, an 18-plus version of Dick Whittington, will be at the Civic Centre, in High Street, on Saturday, November 4, and tells an alternative version of the famous children’s story.

Dan Lewis, director at producers Cattle Productions, says the one-night only show will be the cheapest event they do costing just £16 in celebration of their hometown return.

Dan says the show promises to be entertaining with the added bonus of raising money for the Bradbury Centre in Claypit Street.

He said: “Our hero Dickey comes to Whitchurch in another tale of filth and fun.

“With dreams of becoming a film star, he heads to London to seek his fortune.


“However, like a fool he falls in love with Alice and ends up fighting for her affections.

“But where there’s women, there’s trouble, and he ends up being banished from London – the cheek of it.

“Will Dickey return to save the day? Will he get the girl?

“Find out in the latest installment from the notorious adult panto team – it’s sure to be another hilariously mucky night.”

He added that while the show might not be to everyone’s taste, the chance to raise money should appeal to the audience.

“Tickets are £16, which is almost 20 per cent lower than elsewhere, as it is our hometown venue. 

“We usually sell out everywhere we go and we have a loyal following in Shropshire, especially around these parts. 

“So far we have raised more than £15,000 for charities across the UK, so it's for a good cause, even if it might not be everybody's cup of tea.”

Anybody who would like to attend the 18-plus show, which is on for one night only, can purchase tickets directly at the Civic Centre in person or via

Dan added: "There is a bar at the theatre that sells drinks and snacks and we do a meet and greet at the end of the show where people can have pictures with the cast.

“This is the second time we will have performed at the Civic, having been asked to return.”

The show is expected to run from 7.30pm until around 9.45pm.
