THE TALE of a man and his talented cat will be performed as a late panto treat by a theatre group in Twyford next month.

The Twyford and Ruscombe Theatre Group will present the hilarious story of Dick Whittington and his Cat to audiences at Loddon Hall between January 11 and 13.

The lively show, which features music, dancing and plenty of corny jokes, tells the tale of Dick and his cat, who arrive in London to try to rid the city of the dreaded King Rat and his entourage.

Eventually, after a voyage on the high seas to Morocco, a shipwreck and a whole host of other adventures, Dick returns to London victorious.

Featuring a full cast of loveable characters, the group has pulled out all the stops to give theatre-goers a real post-Christmas treat which will see them through the New Year.

Dick Whittington and his Cat is performed at Loddon Hall on Thursday, January 11 and Friday, January 12 at 7.45pm, and Saturday, January 13 at 2pm and 7pm.

Tickets start from £7 and are available by calling the Box Office on 07378 163771 or visiting
