Dick Whittington with Chris Jarvis

Dick Whittington with Chris Jarvis at the Lighthouse

About

Popular children’s TV presenter Chris Jarvis has been revealed as the star of Dick Whittington, this year’s feelgood family pantomime.

Chris is no stranger to local audiences. In addition to playing the role of Dick Whittington he directs and co-writes the pantomime with actor Peter Duncan. This is the third year running that Duncan Reeves Productions has co-produced the Poole panto with Lighthouse, following the success of their productions of Aladdin and Cinderella.

Since making his name presenting from the ‘Broom Cupboard’ in the early 90s on Children’s BBC, Chris Jarvis has written and presented many programmes for young people and was one of the original line-up of CBeebies presenters. He can currently be seen on CBeebies co-presenting Show Me Show with Pui Fan Lee and will no doubt be joining in with Blue Peter’s 60th celebrations this year along with Peter who was a presenter of the show in the 1980s.

Visitors to the Lighthouse pantomime will be guaranteed plenty of laughs, sparkling new scenery, great contemporary music and audience mayhem as Dick, accompanied by his acrobatic cat sets sail on an adventure in search of fame and fortune. Will he return to become Lord Mayor of London?  You’ll have to come to Lighthouse to find out.

Dick Whittington is a Christmas treat for the whole family.
