PwC Charity Pantomime

Dick Whittington is the 29th annual charitable pantomime production presented by PwC, as part of its Community Affairs Programme to support the local community.

PwC's aim is to bring joy to children from inner city schools and charities, often the only chance they get to experience the magic of live theatre. Each year they give free tickets to 5000 children from local boroughs and your ticket sales help contribute towards that experience. One performance is audio described for the partially sighted and another is signed for the hard of hearing.

PwC's pantomime tells the rags-to-riches tale of a young man and his loyal cat on their exciting quest to London to find fame and fortune! Come and cheer, hiss and sing along as our hero and his loveable feline sidekick travel to exotic lands and mystical worlds. Will our hero defeat the evil King Rat and his terrible gang of vile vermin? Will he find the fortune he’s after? With a belly full of laughter served up by everyone’s favourite dame Sarah the Cook, this is one adventure that is guaranteed to take flight.

Dick Whittington has been brought to life by around 200 PwC staff and pantomime alumni, both on stage and behind the scenes. Every year, the audience are amazed that this is an amateur dramatic group. Come along and see for yourself.
