The London Palladium, once the most famous home in the U.K. for the annual holiday family pantomime, will continue hosting them after the success of this year's return of the genre—with Cinderella—after an absence of nearly 30 years.
Dick Whittington will begin performances December 9, 2017.
Nick Thomas, chairman of Qdos Entertainment, who produced this year's Cinderella (currently running through January 15), commented, “We’ve been overwhelmed by the exceptional response that our production of Cinderella has received—the show has now broken the Box Office record for the highest grossing week in the West End. We couldn’t resist Really Useful Theatre’s invitation to return to the iconic home of pantomime for a second year and look forward to revealing more about Dick Whittington and its cast in the New Year.”
