Much like our brave hero, Dick Whittington, The Chameleons are leaving home and heading to London to seek their fortune. Ok, so in our case it's just a six minute car journey to Kenton but that doesn't make it any less of an exciting adventure and one we hope you'll join us for.

Yes, that's right, The Chameleons, with over 45 years pantomime experience are leaving Brent Town Hall after 30 years. We've grabbed a knapsack and some peanut butter sandwiches and we're heading off to Claremont High School for more traditional family entertainment in pantoland! Claremont High School, a Performing Arts specialist school, boasts a full lighting and sound rig, raised and flat seating and now…......A Chameleons pantomime!

The Chameleons have been nominated for the London "It's Behind You" - Best Pantomime Award for our 2011 production of Sleeping Beauty by NODA - The National Operatic and Dramatic Association

The Show

We are delighted to introduce a fresh and vibrant re-telling of the classic story of Dick Whittington with more than a hint of 2012 – Olympic year! In house writers, Radnor Everett and Robert Spolander, combine the magic of this story of a boy who would be Lord Mayor, with a host of new characters in a tale that will have you laughing, cheering and singing along from start to finish.
When Dick decides to seek his fortune in London as runner in the Olympics he soon finds himself caught up in the evil King Rat's plan to steal the Olympic Torch and ruin everyone's fun. Will Dick save the day? Will he win the heart of Alice Fitzwarren and will Tom the talking Cat fight off the evil, yet slightly silly Pug and Beagle the dogs? Well why don't you all come along and see for yourself in an evening (afternoon) of fun for all the family!

If you've seen our spectacular pantomimes before then Dick Whittington certainly won't disappoint you. Watch out for magic, music and so much more! The production team is in place and already hard at work. It's all set to be a colourful production filled with wonderful characters, song and dance, and of course…bags of energy! The Chameleons Pantomime is now a firm favourite with the local community priding itself on the perfect blend of traditional family entertainment, high energy and of course value for money! We would be delighted if you could join The Chameleons, Tom, Dick but not Harry on this great new adventure.
