Theatre: Ashleigh and Pudsey on panto, dogs and divas
Christmas would not be Christmas without the Hippodrome panto and, this year, the stars of the show will undoubtedly be Britain’s Got Talent stars Ashleigh and Pudsey.
Dick Whittington tells the rags to riches tale of a young man and his cat on a quest for fame and fortune.
Ashleigh, who plays Alice Fitzwarren in the show, told Bristol24/7 that, when the curtains open, it is Pudsey who steals the show.
Appearing alongside them will be Ben Faulks (Mr Bloom from CBeebies) as Dick Whittington, Andy Ford as Idle Jack, panto dame Eric Potts is Sarah the Cook and X Factor’s Brenda Edwards as Fairy Bowbells.
Dick Whittington opens on 6 Dec at The Bristol Hippodrome
