No, it’s not the world’s worst sat-nav – it’s the next BaCStage production:

Dick Whittington and his Cat

Yes indeed, it’s panto time again at BaCStage.  As is our wont, we will be staging our panto during half-term week in February.  We do this so that our junior cast members, of whom there are several, not to mention their keepers (that’s “parents and guardians” – Ed) can fully immerse themselves in the unique experience that is a BaCStage production week without having to worry about trivial distractions like getting themselves an edyoocayshun.  Who needs one of those anyway, right kids?
No but seriously children, pay attention and work hard at school or one day you’ll wake up looking like this:
Who Is That Joker
Now, you may already be familiar with the tale of Master Whittington and his furry feline friend.  However, BaCStage will be telling the story with a twist. I myself am not familiar with the tale of Master Whittington and his furry feline friend, so I don’t know which part of the BaCStage version of the story constitutes a twist, but I am reliably informed by people who know far more about these things than I do that there’s definitely a twisty bit in there somewhere. Of course, even if I knew where the twist was I wouldn’t be giving it away here and now – you’ll just have to come along in February and find out for yourself!
I suppose it’s a bit soon to start the full-on panto hard sell though, isn’t it boys and girls? (Oh no it isn’t – Ed)
What I do know for certain and am more than happy to share with you now is that in the weeks to come there will be more about Dick Whittington and his Cat appearing here.  I know that because I’ll be putting it here myself.
(Oh no you won’t – Ed)
Oh yes I will.
(Oh no you won’t – Ed)
Oh yes I will.
And with that exchange I declare panto season officially open.
(Oh no it’s not – Ed)
Oh, and by the way – Ed won’t be appearing in the panto.
(Oh yes I… no, you’re right, I won’t – Ed)
Coming Soon - Dick Whittington and his Cat

    Nice one, Luke.
    I really feel the uneducated chap in the hat should appear somewhere in the panto, though. He’s certainly dressed for it!
