Cheryl Hole and other Drag Race UK queens to star in hilarious all-drag West End panto

Drag Race UK star Cheryl Hole will play the title character in the drag Dick Whittington.

Drag Race UK stars are among the cast of the all-drag reimagining of classic panto Dick Whittington, and it’s going to be as camp as Christmas.

The show at Phoenix Theatre on London’s West End will star Cheryl Hole and series three queens Choriza May and Kitty Scott Claus.

The trio will appear in the festive production between 5 December and 9 January and fans can get their hands on tickets from

The new Dick Whittington has been created by TuckShop, who’ve previously showcased drag, murder-mystery Death Drop and a drag version of Cinderella.

The show will star Cheryl Hole as the title character, alongside Kitty as The Spirit of Soho and Choriza as Queen Rat.

They’ll be joined by Holly Stars as The Cat, Beau Jangles as The Mayor of Soho, Yshee Black as Dame Sarah and Ophelia Love as Villager Number 4.

Cheryl says her West End starring role is “definitely a ‘pinch me’ moment” and she promises she “won’t be mediocre”.

“If you told baby Cheryl she would be doing all this, I would have told you you’re telling a big fat lie,” she adds.

Kitty Scott Claus says she will be “bringing a bit of glamour (and something for the dads)” when she appears in the West End show.

While Choriza May adds: “My partner took me to see Panto the first Christmas I spent in the UK after moving from Spain, and I fell in love with it! Now I get to headline Dick Whittington. Full circle moment, que loco!”.

They will compete in the show which premieres on BBC iPlayer and WOW Presents Plus from 23 September.

It will see 12 contestants battle it out to be crowned the UK’s next drag superstar, including the show’s first ever cisgender woman drag artist, Victoria Scone.
