Toronto: The NAGs Players announce their 2019 panto – “Dick Whittington and His Cat”

Tuesday, January 8, 2019

The NAGs Players are pleased to present their production of Ben Crocker’s Dick Whittington and his Cat.

Join Dick and his cat Tommy (irritatingly supported by Fairy Bowbells) in 14thcentury England as they go on a magical and musical journey to London and then to the shores of Morocco and back. Along the way, Dick meets the evil King Rat and his band of ratlings, the beautiful Alice Fitzwarren and her father (who bears a remarkable resemblance to his own brother and to the Emperor of Morocco), the slow-moving Idle Jack and, of course, Sarah the traditional pantomime Dame. Audiences can expect lots of laughs and plenty of participation in booing the baddies, cheering the goodies, and groaning at awful jokes.

The play will be performed on January 31 and February 1-2 and 7-8-9, 2019 at 7:30 PM in the Main Hall at the Tranzac Club, 292 Brunswick Avenue in Toronto. There will also be children’s matinées at 1:30 PM on February 2 and 9 with profits donated to Isthmus – feeding hungry kids across Canada.

Tickets are $15-20, $5 for children at matinées, and can be purchased online at
