Theatre company Sleeping Trees is set to bring pantomime to homes this Christmas, presenting The Legend of Moby Dick Whittington throughout December.

With many live pantomimes not able to take place this year, Sleeping Trees will be presenting The Legend of Moby Dick Whttington in homes over the Christmas period.

Mayor of London, Dick Whittington, is turning on the Christmas lights of London for the very first time. But, when a giant white whale swims into the Thames and swallows Santa Claus whole, Dick, his trusty sidekick Cat, and a whole host of fairy-tale favourites, must embark on a quest to stop
Christmas being ruined forever.

Directed by Karry Frampton, this new pantomime comes from the team behind the critically acclaimed Goldilocks and the Three Musketeers at Battersea Arts Centre in 2019. It has been written by John Woodburn,James Dunnell-Smith,Joshua George Smith and Ben Hales.

Talking about the production James Dunnell-Smith, Co-Artistic Director of Sleeping Trees, said: “We hope this project brings some much-needed joy into homes this Christmas, and keeps some of that special Christmas spirit
alive and well. Above all else, Christmas is about spending time with family and loved-ones,something that has been harder than ever in 2020, we hope this film demonstrates the importance of that, and no matter how tough things get, we always have one another to get us through.”

The Legend of Moby Dick Whittington will be streamed from the 1st until the 5th January 2021. To book tickets visit: https://sleepingtrees.ticketco.events/uk/en/e/the_legend_of_moby_dick_whittington
