Dick! - an adult panto at Leicester Square Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
THIS CHRISTMAS, Leicester Square Theatre’s adult panto is Dick! Starring the legendary international DJ and celebrated nightclub diva, Miss Dusty O, it runs for an eight-week season from Thursday, November 29, 2012 to Sunday, January 20, 2013.
Dick and his wallflower cat, ‘Dave’, are heading into London town, seeking fame, fortune and friends with benefits. Along the way, they meet the heiress to the ‘Fitz-Nicely’ fortune, ‘Alice’, with her long lost and debauched relative, ‘Sofonda Cox’, a faded showgirl with a dark, disgusting and delicious secret.
Dick and his new found friends dare to do battle against the evil-licious and diva-tastic ‘Queen Runt’, as they set sail upon the Leaky Vessel, journeying up the Streaky Crack on a quest to find the family jewels.
Will ‘Dave’ always be alone? Will ‘Alice’ ever get Dick? and what does the legend of the ‘Bell-End’ actually mean? All will be uncensored by the new, Lord Mayor of London, as audiences finally discover if City Hall can be run by a Dick!
Joining Miss Dusty O (as Sofonda Cox) in the cast are Gary Albert Hughes (Dick), Nathaniel Tapley (Dave the Cat), Rae Brogan (Alice), Lucyelle Cliffe (Queen Runt) and Laura Hyde (Fairy Bell-End).
Dick! is written and directed by Stuart Saint.
