AFTER six weeks and 63 performances before a combined audience number of just under 60,000 Dick Whittington did his last battle with King Rat on Sunday evening, as the curtain fell on another festive season of pantomime at MK Theatre!

The show starred A-Team actor Dirk Benedict as King Rat, and Gavin & Stacey actress Joanna Page as Whittington’s love interest.

”We are once again delighted that so many people from the region came and enjoy the pantomime,” said MKT general manager Andrew Lister, “We are thrilled with the continual support.”

The last weekend of shows was flush with audience members who also took the opportunity to meet fellow pantomime stars, Britain’s Got Talent finalists Stavros Flatley, left.
