IDFB co-producer Birmingham Hippodrome presents Britain’s biggest and glitziest pantomime, which runs until Sunday 30 January. And yes, star-studded Dick Whittington is also Hollywood screen legend Joan Collins‘ panto debut playing the role of Queen Rat. Joining her in this all-singing, all-dancing family adventure is comedian Julian Clary as The Spirit of the Bells, Nigel Havers as the dastardly King Rat, Keith Harris with Orville & Cuddles as the hopeless Rat Catchers, and sitcom veteran Jeffrey Holland as Dame Felicity Fitzwarren.
Watch the cast interview below.

Follow Dick and his Cat on their journey to London; set sail to foreign lands and help our heroes fight off the evil Queen and King Rat in an attempt to save the day and win the heart of the beautiful Alice Fitzwarren.
This year’s pantomime is bursting at the seams with magnificent scenery, stunning special effects and glittering costumes plus even more hilarious jokes and crazy antics!
