PANTO IS BACK!
The Hospitality Industry’s Pantomime is back – and it’s bigger and better than ever! We’ll be hitting the West End stage with our adaptation of a panto classic – the famous Dick Whittington!
After three sell-out shows back in January, Springboard will be taking over London’s Leicester Square Theatre for four spectacular nights from 29th January – 1st February 2019.
The script has been written from scratch, so expect plenty of fun, as Dick travels to London to start his career as a chef - with a little help from some all-singing, all-dancing hospitality characters along the way!
If you want to reward your team with a hilarious night out, all while supporting and raising vital funds for The Springboard Charity, then make sure you grab your tickets soon!
The box office is now open, so get your tickets here! The earlier you get your tickets, the better seats you will get, so don’t delay!
THIS IS WHAT LAST YEAR'S AUDIENCE HAD TO SAY:
“My team and I loved Aladdin – I don’t think I have laughed so much in a long time” - Jo Cumming, Food & Fuel
"It was really, genuinely funny and I lost my voice from shouting" - Tom Rayfox, The Grape Society
“The whole performance was superb, we all had a smashing time!” - Rajiv Saujani, Pizza Express
“That felt like an actual panto! The script, the shameless advertising plugs, the choreography... It was all really good and so enjoyable to watch!” - Ruth Ray, Collins King
After an intense X Factor-style casting period, being put through their paces by three professional directors and a choreographer, the full cast has been just been finalised!
