Isle of Wight panto opens tonight

Tourists on their Isle of Wight holidays in the next few weeks will be able to take in a performance of a pantomime during their time on the island.

According to a report in the Isle of Wight County Press, the first showing of Dick Whittington gets underway tonight (December 9th 2010) at the Ventnor Winter Gardens venue.

"The story features a high-spirited hero, a plucky young heroine and the biggest baddy of them all, King Rat, all providing many opportunities for cheering, booing, hissing and heaps of hilarious comedy," noted the news provider.

It added that a live band will be on hand to accompany the actors, who come from Ventnor Theatre Group, with John Woodward playing the dame.

Tickets for the show - which is likely to be popular among families on Isle of Wight holidays this weekend - are available for £8.50 for adults and £6.50 for under-16s, with the venue's box office open from 12:00 GMT to 15:00.
