As one Pantomime ends another one begins.

As the Box Office Hit Cinderella closes, Lincoln Theatre Royal has announced their 2012 Pantomime as Dick Whittington.

A spokesman said: “After another successful season the Lincoln Theatre Royal’s Pantomime Cinderella has come to an end but do not despair as the 2012 pantomime is already on sale.”

“ID Pantomimes is delighted to announce, that due to rocketing ticket sales for Cinderella and back by popular demand, Lincoln’s adopted sons Cannon and Ball return in the thigh-slapping Dick Whittington.”

Lincoln Theatre Royal’s Box Office hit an all-time high completely smashing the 2010 Pantomime sales for Aladdin.

Marketing and Press Manager Samantha Gough said: “The Box Office Sales have been absolutely phenomenal, we of course hoped that Cinderella would be a favourite but we didn’t expect it to be received in the way that it has.”

She added: “We thank our audiences for their support and for their positive response.”

“Following such a positive response and a high demand for the 2012 Pantomime tickets, we have decided to put them on sale straight away - so book now to avoid disappointment.”

Cannon and Ball star in Dick Whittington at Lincoln Theatre Royal from Friday 7th December 2012 - Sunday 13th January 2013.

Tickets are £11 - £17 and are available by calling 01522 519999 or by visiting
