Dick Whittington and his Mousehole Cat
6 December 2015 - 3 January 2016
Dick Whittington and his Mousehole Cat at the Hall For Cornwall, Truro. Day and evening performances.
Once upon a time, a young lad called Dick Whittington set off from Cornwall to follow his dreams of fame and riches. But times are hard, and before long our hero hasn't got a penny to his name and nobody but his faithful cat for company. He turns for home....
Will Dick find his fortune after all? Or will his hopes be thwarted by the menacing King Rat and his minions?
Starring Harry Potter actor Granville Saxton who is a firm favourite with HFC audiences, loved for his hilarious audience interaction and brilliant ad-libbing. Granville is back, this time playing Alderman Fitzwarren, but keep your eyes peeled as he is set to pop up in a variety of other intriging guises, so expect even more laughs and surprises!
Appearing alongside Granville will be Cornwall's very own comedy star Kernow King, otherwise known as Edward Rowe! Kernow King has become a huge local star, known for his hilarious stand up routines where he presents a Cornish mock 'take' on the world around us! A professionally trained actor, Edward is looking forward to being back on the theatrical stage and will play the role of Kenwyn, Dick Whittington's cousin who joins him on an adventure to London.
Hall For Cornwall are proud to present a home-grown Christmas adventure for the whole family!
