While many live pantomimes may not be able to go ahead this Christmas, one production will bring the magic of panto into your living room with The Legend of Moby Dick Whittington.
Streaming into your homes throughout December, this epic adventure will ensure that the whole family have a whale of a time.
Mayor of London, Dick Whittington, is turning on the Christmas lights of London for the very first time.
But, when a giant white whale swims into the Thames and swallows Santa Claus whole, Dick, his trusty sidekick Cat, and a whole host of fairy-tale favourites, must embark on a quest to stop Christmas being ruined forever.
With talking rats, cats, original music and plenty of chances to join-in, The Legend of Moby Dick Whittington is an unmissable festive treat for the whole family this Christmas.
Audiences will embark on a magical expedition like no other using a few basic household items and their imaginations.
Sofas become boats and wooden spoons become swords to help the cast paddle through sea storms and escape the inside of a whale’s belly, all from the comfort of their home.
James Dunnell-Smith, co-artistic director of production company Sleeping Trees, said: “We hope this project brings some much-needed joy into homes this Christmas, and keeps some of that special Christmas spirit alive and well.
“Above all else, Christmas is about spending time with family and loved-ones, something that has been harder than ever in 2020, we hope this film demonstrates the importance of that, and no matter how tough things get, we always have one another to get us through.
“James Dunnell-Smith, Joshua George Smith and John Woodburn are sublime comic talents, delivering exceptional performances.
“Take your loved ones to see it, and I guarantee that you will have a wonderful time together.”
