City council workers hope their pantomime will be the cat's whiskers
OH yes they are! Derby City Council employees are hoping to put on a purrrr-fect performance of Dick Whittington and his cat.
Staff are preparing to tread the boards as they take part in the authority's first ever pantomime – called DiCC Whittington.
Directed by Derby Live's creative producer, Pete Meakin, it tells the famous story of orphan Dick, who journeys to London in search of his fortune but ends up trading on the rat-catching abilities of his cat.
Staff are busy rehearsing for the production, which will be staged at the Guildhall Theatre from Wednesday, February 6, to Saturday, February 9.
