The winner of a family ticket to this year’s Waterside Theatre pantomime, Dick Whittington, has been announced.

The online competition was won by Hemel Hempstead woman Jacqueline Adam.

Mrs Adam said she was delighted at the news.

“What a lovely surprise it was to win the tickets - we are really looking forward to seeing the pantomime,” Mrs Adam said.

“It will be a special treat for our youngest son, as recently he has been the one performing in a show. This time he can sit back and enjoy the experience from the other side of the stage, whilst us parents can enjoy not being a taxi service to all the rehearsals leading up to the performance!”

Mrs Adam was chosen at random from the 57 correct entries to the competition and will now get to see X Factor winner Sam Bailey make her pantomime debut at the Waterside this Christmas.

This year’s purrrrrrfect pantomime paved with gold is the magical tale of Dick Whittington.

Dick Whittington features an all-star cast which also includes singer Sam Bailey as the magical Fairy Bowbells, funny man Andy Collins as Idle Jack, and X Factor finalist Melanie Masson as boo-able baddie Queen Rat.

Join Dick and his feline friend on his fun-filled quest for fame and fortune. Will the streets really be paved with gold? Will he win the hand of the lovely Alice - and will he defeat the dastardly Queen Rat? There’s only one way to find out.

The panto features all of the usual favourite ingredients – sensational songs, a live band, dazzling dance routines, slapstick comedy, and plenty of audience participation.
