Karen from Finance – star of RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under – and drag King Richard Energy –will complete the cast of DICK WHITTINGTON, the new all drag West End pantomime from TuckShop – the UK’s only specialist production company devoted all things drag – playing at The Phoenix Theatre this Christmas.
With performances on Sundays 5,12,19 December, Tuesday 4 and Sunday 9 January, as previously announced, “Dick” will star RuPaul’s Drag Race UK favourites Cheryl Hole as ‘Dick’, plus two of the Queens from Series 3, Kitty Scott Claus as ‘The Spirit of Soho’, and Choriza May as ‘Queen Rat’.
Written by Gareth Joyner and directed by TuckShop Founder and Creative Director Chris Clegg, Dick Whittington will also star Holly Stars as ‘The Cat’, Beau Jangles as ‘The Mayor of Soho’, Yshee Black as ‘Dame Sarah’, and Ophelia Love as ‘Villager Number 4’. Karen from Finance will play ‘Alice’ and Richard Energy will play ‘Daddy’.
Join our hero Dick Whittington on his thrilling quest to find adventure fame and fortune in the glittering streets of Soho, with his feisty and funny pussy cast. Will he be able to defeat villainous rodent Queen Rat, with the help of the Spirit of Soho, save the city and win the hand of his love, the beautiful Alice?
Get ready to follow your dreams as this classic tale is re-imagined in TuckShop’s own way. Unlike any other pantomime you’ll see, written by Gareth Joyner, you’ll be gagging on Dick and his friends as they bring the spirit of Soho to the West End.
Teaming up with Ameena Hamid, the West End’s youngest producer, Dick Whittington is the second all drag West End pantomime from TuckShop, following the first 2019 sell-out hit Cinderella.
