CHRISTMAS may be six months away, but Newport’s Riverfront Theatre is already gearing up for some festive fun courtesy of its annual family pantomime.

This year’s show will be Dick Whittington – and cast members paid a visit to the city to launch the show, which will run fromDecember 2 until January 6.

The show is presented by the Riverfront and Hiss and Boo, the team that produced last year’s record-breaking Beauty and the Beast.

Tickets, priced from £5.50 to £18 are on sale now at newport.gov.uk/theriverfront or by calling 01633 656757.

I thought this year's big "Panto" was the one sponsored by the Argus..."Kevin and the Non Newport Nato conference"? I was really looking forward to this one where our hero scales the walls of the old Manor house to meet all the crazed generals and corrupt politicos. Only to find they're all dinning out in Cardiff! "No Ssssscoop Kevin!" , shout all the schoolkids in the front row. No manners.
