14.12.2019: Entertainment Views: Dick Whittington Review
Dick Whittington ~ Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

Panto season has well and truly started in the midlands, oh yes it has! What better way to kick off the festivities than with a trip to the Wolverhampton Grand Theatre on the theatre’s 125th birthday?

...Ian Adams (writer, director and Dame) should be glowing with pride at such a spectacular triumph. He’s a seasoned pantomime performer which shines through, however the talent he clearly possesses as far as writing and direction is concerned was not lost on me. Aaron James was on top comedy form as Jack, his impersonations alone were outstanding. Jeffrey Holland was a perfect choice for Alderman Fitzwarren, bringing his usual exceptional stage presence to the role. His energy is incredible and did cause me to wonder if he might still be able to play the Dame, a character I know he has played wonderfully many times in the past.

It’s undeniable that the effervescent and incomparable Su Pollard stole the show as Queen Rat. What vocal ability! I loved her comedic take on the villainous character, she remains a force to be reckoned with for all the right reasons. As a Hi De Hi! fan myself, the reference to the show (which was fitting given both Pollard and Holland’s presence in the cast) made my night.

14.12.2019: Birmingham Mail: Dick Whittington Review
Review: Dick Whittington brings panto fun to Wolverhampton Grand Theatre

The hilarious show stars Ryan Thomas and Su Pollard

Utterly bonkers - that's how I'd sum up this year's pantomime at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.

Dick Whittington is a bizarre rags to riches tale, which sees the hero arrive in London, acquire a talking cat, take on Queen Rat to rid the city of rodents and become mayor. Oh, and there's a stormy sea trip to Morocco thrown in there too.

... Corrie's Ryan Thomas was pleasantly surprising as the Dick, while Hi-de-Hi! star Su Pollard pulled a blinder as the evil Queen Rat.

14.12.2019: Bromsgrove Standard: Dick Whittington Review
Grand's Dick takes the festive season to new Hi-de-heights

There was a great atmosphere at the Wolverhampton Grand as the official opening night also marked 125 years to the day the theatre first opened its doors.

The Grand really is quite a gem of a theatre, splenderously appointed, warm and welcoming and home to some wonderful productions.

‘Dick Whittington’ is splenderously staged by Qdos Entertainment, with one lavish set after another appearing – it was like gazing down a kaleidoscope and quite rightly, accompanied by an equally lush, never-ending parade of frocks.

Song, dance and celebrity silliness: Dick Whittington, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre - Review

It is a delight for all the family - from the young ones all the way up to the grandparents in the audience.

... Su is a delight as the baddie. She is scary yet amusing and provides many of the comedy moments throughout the show, prompting plenty of panto boos from the audience. A favourite scene is when she is joined by a giant rat which takes over the whole stage and comes out over the audience, scaring plenty of youngsters in the audience.

Su's Hi-De-Hi! co-star Walsall-born Jeffrey Holland also excels as Alderman Fitzwarren, while one scene sees Su and Jeffrey reuniting as their sitcom characters Polly and Spike.

12.12.2019: Stourbridge News: Dick Whittington Review
Comedy legend Su Pollard headline's the Wolverhampton Grand's 'Dick Whittington' as the villainous 'Queen Rat'

Comically dressed as Boris Johnson, impressionist Aaron James struts across the Grand’s slightly-canted boards, promising the audience he’s “going to fix this mess”. He’s talking, it transpires, about his hair. Naturally..

... Much of the humour comes courtesy of a very game cast, perhaps most notably comedy legend Su Pollard chomping and chewing out every moment on stage as a tail-swinging, shimmy-shaking and truly dastardly Queen Rat. Pollard clearly knows and loves panto inside-out, and is a blast as the show’s villain, camping it up whilst still injecting it with enough menace and bombast to be a boo-hissable adversary for the audience (old and young alike) to jeer at.

The event, organised by Acting For Others, saw a significant queue of attendees on the morning of the event, with a number of thespians and celebrities in attendance doing their bit to raise cash for a great cause.
