Rehearsals have started on Dick Whittington, the new pantomime from Imagine Theatre.
The show opens at Reading’s Hexagon Theatre on Saturday, December 5 and features Justin Fletcher, better known as CBeebies superstar Mr Tumble.
Speaking to The Wokingham Paper, Mr Fletcher said: “I am back at The Hexagon playing Idle Jack in Dick Whittington. This is a new storyline [for me] so it’s very exciting – and a new cast as well.
“We started rehearsals yesterday and it’s just great, fantastic cast, lots of funny gags already, great storyline I think we’re gonna have a fantastic show.”
We’ll have more from Justin, who also stars in CBeebies shows Gigglebiz and Justin’s House, in Friday’s Wokingham Paper, on sale at all good newsagents for just 50p.
