IT’S panto time once again as Linda Robson and Paul Nicholas head the cast of Dick Whittington And His Cat, at Derby’s Assembly Rooms.

The show, the latest at the venue from producers Paul Holman Associates, runs from December 7 to January 8.

Just Good Friends and West End star Paul Nicholas will star as the villainous King Rat, alongside Big Breakfast roving reporter Mike ‘Squeaky’ McClean as Idle Jack, and Birds Of A Feather stalwart Linda Robson as Fairy Bow Bells.

The principal cast is completed by CITV star Luke Roberts as Dick Whittington and the return of Ian Good as Sarah the Cook.

This will be a Christmas pantomime adventure paved with gold, packed with comedy capers and polished off with all the winning ingredients Assembly Rooms panto audiences have come to expect.
