Herefordshire theater company to produce very first pantomime

Our Star Theater Company is proud to present ‘Dick Whittington’ at the Phoenix Theater January 5-15.

Fun, jokes and laughs are guaranteed as Dick travels to London Town to make his fortune.

Along the way, he befriends a talking cat, finds work at a local candy store, and falls in love with Alice.

Everything is going well until the evil Rat King arrives to try and take over all of London, but the question is… will Dick and his friends stop the evil for him?

Our Star further strengthened their relationship with the Phoenix Theater, being their first return to theater show after the lockdown in September.

A spokesperson for Our Star said Ross-on-Wye has become one of the company’s favorite touring spots, thanks to the community’s keen interest in the city’s volunteer-run theater, showing great support in numbers for each show.

The company, which was formed five years ago, is a professional Herefordshire-based company made up of actors and creators from all three counties and surrounding areas.

Herefordshire remains a proud part of their history, and they constantly promote the creative products the county has to offer.

“We’re excited to produce our very first pantomime in Ross-on-Wye and bring some seasonal magic back to the city,” the spokesperson said.
