Join us for the online premiere of the recorded version of this year's panto.

The legendary Playhouse panto returns full of sparkle, excitement and fun.  Our hero’s incredible escapades take him onto the High Seas, into battle with the evil King Rat and see him fall head over heels in love with his boss’s daughter Alice. All the while the magical Bow Bells are whispering his destiny – to become Mayor of London!

Packed with dazzling dance, a brilliant live band and swashbuckling adventure, the show reunites us with Nottingham’s favourite panto dame John Elkington, who’ll be serving up some comedy chaos as Sarah the Cook.

Full of fun, singing and lots of action – we promise to have you buzzing from a fantastic, festive night out.

How it works

Once you have booked for Dick Whittington, you will receive an email with your e-ticket attached. This e-ticket will contain a link to the page on our website where the recording will be accessed. You will need to be logged in to Nottingham Playhouse account.

Then, join us at 7.30pm on Monday 12 December for our Watch Party – you’ll be the first to experience our magical panto online alongside others who are tuning in. You will then have access to the recording for five days to watch as many times as you like, at whatever time suits you. Please make sure you watch the show before the end of your rental period to make sure you don’t miss out.

If you don’t receive your e-ticket straight away after purchasing, please check your spam/junk folders.

If you are using a smart TV, you should be able to access the show through your browser. You can find help and advice on this and more on our FAQs page.
