Chick Whittington--Macrobert, Stirling

Stirling Stella is under attack.  It’s been fifty years since The Great Christmas Rat Race of 1967 that almost destroyed the pantosphere and now Queen Rat is back! Read more …

Step, or rather push forward, one Chick Whittington (grand-daughter to the legendary Dick).
Surely removing the streets of vermin will be as easy to her as it was her granddaddy? 
Surely Alice Fitzwarren and her newly invented Time Machine can help save the day?
Will Stirling Stella ever be free of the flea-bitten Queen Rat and her minions? 
Will Chick ever step out of her grandpa’s murderous shadow? 
Will anyone notice that the plot bears a very strong resemblance to Back to the Future?

Grab your sweeties and your loudest voices to boo, hiss and dance a merry jig at this year’s panto extravaganza!

The critical consensus

As entertaining for the little kids as the big ones, Chick Whittington is another resounding success for Johnny McKnight.

The energy of the cast and the rapidfire jokes, pitched at all ages, prove hard to resist.

It's a slick and gallus joy. A winter warmer that slips down like a Hot Toddy (whoever he is).

****(*)Lorna Irvine, The List, 01/12/2017

A huge amount of fun is had by everyone including the audience.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 02/12/2017

Daft, sometimes confusing, though the storyline is, it does serve its primary purpose (namely, allowing designers Kenneth MacLeod and Alison Brown to go all psychedelic with the Swinging Sixties sets and costumes).
