45 years of Panto magic!

Dick Whittington
Seaton Delaval Arts Centre
Friday 1st to Saturday 9th December 2017

Talented cast members from a local Pantomime Society are gearing up for a magical pantomime adventure this December as they celebrate forty five years of their group.

The Seaton Delaval Pantomime Society have performed an annual show in the village every single year since their very first production in 1973. Times have changed in the last forty five years, but the company continue to do what they set out all those years ago, producing a traditional family Pantomime for the local community to enjoy. To celebrate the milestone they are putting on a special production of Dick Whittington this December at the Seaton Delaval Arts Centre.

Dick and his magical feline friend take on an enchanting adventure as they run away to London to seek fame and fortune. But it won’t be plain sailing with the dastardly King Rat out to thwart him at every turn. With some help from good friends including Sarah the Cook and Idle Jack, will Dick win the day? The show is packed full of show-stopping songs, dazzling dance routines and hilarious knockabout comedy with bags of audience participation and fun. The cast, made up of young and old from the local area, have been rehearsing for the show since September, learning words and complex dance routines ready for the festive extravaganza.

Stu Bennett, Chairman of the society said: “It’s truly amazing to think our society is still thriving after all these years. Our team work incredibly hard to give people a chance to tread the boards for the first time and of course provide quality entertainment to the whole community. We can’t wait to celebrate our anniversary in style with this fantastic production.”

The show takes place nightly from Friday 1st to Saturday 9th December at the Seaton Delaval Arts Centre. Performances take place nightly at 7.00pm with matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 1.00pm. Tickets are priced at £10.00 for full price, £9.00 for concessions and £34.00 for a family ticket, available from the Box Office on 0191 237 5460 or book online at
