About Ricky McWhittington

A traditional Glasgow panto by Alan McHugh, Senga McWhittington’s Sweetie Shop in downtown Glasgow is over-run by a swarm of rats, led by the villainous verminous Queen Rat! Nothing can stop this plague until our hero Ricky McWhittington steps in to save the day, with the helping wand of Fairy Gallus Alice, and fearless feline Kitty. Will good win out? Will Melody find her true love? Will Senga get a man?!

A fantastic family show full of laughs, singalong favourites... and sweeties! Adapted and directed by Bill Wright. Designed by Brian Hartley.
