It's hiss & boo time!

THE Corn Exchange has announced the cast for its 2015 pantomime Dick Whittington, giving them a big Newbury welcome when they took part in a photoshoot at the venue in preparation for their seasonal adventure.
Among the returning cast is the Newbury favourite Matt Grace, who is this year playing Billy the Cat; Phil Sealey, who played Widow Twankey in Aladdin in 2014, will be donning the dress to play the buxom dame, Sarah the Cook; and leading man Christian James, who played Aladdin last year, will be Dick Whittington.
Some of the new faces set to experience their first Newbury panto are Oliver Tattersfield, Joey Warne and Leah Carter, who make up the colourful ensemble.
Phoebe Lewis will be joining the new cast in the role of Alice and last – but by no means least – the magical Good Fairy is played by the larger-than-life Lizzy Dive who will do battle with the wicked King Rat, played by Oliver Broad.
Produced by the Corn Exchange and written and directed by the award-winning Phil Willmott, you can expect this new cast and script to make you laugh, cheer and boo.
If you’re looking for a family-friendly, traditional pantomime packed to the rafters with uplifting and catchy songs, high energy dance routines, comic thrills and outrageous silliness, then book your tickets to see this talented cast – tickets are selling fast.
So head on down to the Corn Exchange, to follow Dick Whittington’s adventures as he and his friends do battle with a rather nasty rat. Tickets range from £16.50 to £21 (£10 on preview nights), with concessions and group tickets available on certain performances.
Dick Whittington, which is supported by Newbury Building Society, opens on Friday, November 27, and runs until Sunday, January 3, so go online at www.cornexchangenew.com/panto
and book now.
