-------------------------------------------------

Chameleons chose the traditional tale of Dick Whittington for pantomime in 2004. John Morley's funny retelling of the story has all the pantomime elements. Dick, our young hero, comes to London to make his fortune, befriending Tommy the cat along the way. He meets young and pretty Alice, who persuades her father, Alderman Fitwarren, to give him a job. But evil King Rat wants to take over London and become Lord Mayor, so Dick, Tommy and Fairy Tinkle must thwart his wicked plan.

Dick Whittington was a real person and was elected Lord Mayor of London three times.

Liz Strevens was the director. Here are a few photographs from the show, and the review in the Hampshire Chronicle.
