What is a St Albans or Harpenden Christmas without a panto? Other pantomimes are available but Dick Wittington in a classis for residents a stone’s throw from London. Harpenden Public Halls’ panto for 2017 is Dick Whittington as Act One Pantomimes return with another laughter-packed family panto.

You can join your hero Dick Whittington and his faithful cat Tommy as they set out on a quest to find fame and fortune in London Town. The show stars Jen Pringle as Fairy Bowbells. Jen is a Milkshake presenter on Channel Five, and she is very popular with children. She says she is really looking forward to coming to the town to spread her Fairy magic. Luke Roberts from TVs Hi-5 returns and says he is delighted to be back in town as is BBC Three Counties Radio's Ernie Almond who returns to add his comedy talents to the show.

Gasp and groan, cheer and boo as we follow Dick on his adventures, will find the streets of London paved with gold? Will he win the hand of the lovely Alice? Will he defeat the evil King Rat? The story takes us from Gloucester   to London and then to Morocco, with twists and turns and plenty of laughs along the way. There will also be some fantastic singing and dancing, a brilliant live band, sumptuous costumes and scenery and bags of audience participation.
