Family panto has become a local institution

Where: The Roses, Tewkesbury

When: December 1 to January 5

Adventure, laughter, magic, fun and excitement. These are just a few words that describe a trip to The Roses' pantomime, and this year's tale Dick Whittington promises all this and plenty more.

Tewkesbury's traditional family pantomime has become a local institution and, for many families, provides one of the highlights of their festivities over the Christmas period.

This year audiences will be treated to a spectacular performance of Dick Whittington, which sees the plucky title character set off on a daring mission across the seas with an eclectic band of companions.

Filled with music and laughter throughout, there is no better antidote to the pressures that the season can often bring than two hours of pure unadulterated escapism!

The Roses' festive show is brought to life by a talented cast and creative team, including writer and director Ben Crocker.

Complete with all of the magic and sparkle you would expect from a Christmas show, you will be transported to an exotic world of music, mayhem and pure escapism.

Dick Whittington runs at The Roses Theatre in Tewkesbury from Saturday, December 1, through to Saturday, January 5.

Performances vary in price, with tickets ranging from £15-£25. Family and group discounts are available on most performances.
