The panto is launched!
27th August 2010
Read about our panto launch in the Cumnock Chronicle.
Meet Liam Dolan, director and star of Dick Whittington at the Palace Theatre, Kilmarnock, and Adele Rankin who plays Alice Fitzwarren in the videos below.
Recently two photo shoots took place for the Palace panto. The first saw Liam Dolan meeting up with Peter Amory (Emmerdale) for their own photo shoot in Croydon. Peter is on tour at the moment so couldn't make the main shoot in Kilmarnock.
Then a few days later, Liam, Suzanne, Louise and Adele met up at the Palace Theatre to formally launch the panto!
Four more cast members confirmed!
18th June 2010
Peter Amory (Chris Tate from Emmerdale) plays King Rat, Louise McCarthy returns for a second year to play Fairy Bowbells, Adele Rankin returns for a fifth year to play Alice McFitzwarren and Suzanne Donaldson returns for a second time to play Dick Whittington.
Looking forward to working with you all this year! x

We are delighted to welcome back two Palace panto stalwarts to Dick Whittington. Liam Dolan returns for his sixth year to direct and star in the panto as Idle Jack.
Liam is joined by Steven Wren who re-joins the Palace cast after an absence of four years. Steven played Dame for us in 2004 (Cinderella) and 2005 (Jack and the Beanstalk) and returns as Dame Sarah the Cook! Here's what Steven looked like last time he played dame for us!
The 2010 pantomime is Dick Whittington!
4th March 2010
East Ayrshire Council in association with Imagine brings another unmissable, bright family panto to the Palace Theatre.
Join Dick on his quest for fame and fortune to see if the streets of London are really paved with gold. It’s the beginning of an adventure that will lead from Kilmarnock to London to Morocco, with a trip to the bottom of the sea on the way. Can Dick win the hand of the fair Alice McFitzwarren? Can he and his faithful cat rid London of King Rat and his hordes of little rats? And will his dream of becoming Mayor ever come true?
Join us for this sparkling production with all the usual pantomime ingredients – spectacular scenery and sparkling costumes, corny jokes, hilarious slapstick and bags of audience participation.
The panto has gone from strength to strength over the past few years achieving record sales. Tickets are on sale now so book early to be sure to avoid disappointment.
