Dick Whittington & His Cat

Act 1
MUSICQ1: OVERTURE/INTRO

Prologue

(Fairyland)

As the lights come up on Fairyland, we are greeted to the sight of FAIRY


BOWBELLS in her majestic glory.
FAIRY:

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls and welcome to Fairyland.


Its so exciting, dont you think? Its magical, glittery and grand.
In case you dont already know, my name is Fairy Bowbells, yes indeed
My job is to help tell this glorious tale and move it along with speed.
In old London Town, theres a young boy named Dick Whittington
Hes searching the streets paved with gold
Hes a brave boy, courageous and very bold.
But alas, our young Dick will have no luck
The streets arent paved with gold for thats just a myth
It does indeed suck, doesnt it, boys and girls? (Audience response)
However, if our hero manages to end up
In the right place at the right time
He shall be alright and become Lord Mayor with the clocks chime.
Now, I cant stand here all day, wittering on at you
Theres far too much to be done.
So off well go to London Town with the dawn and the rising sun.

The lights fade into London Town.

Scene One

As the lights rise on London Town, we see the VILLAGERS and ALDERMAN
FITZWARREN, who is looking very splendid.

Father, youre looking very jovial today. I havent seen you this happy

After the merry dance, the VILLAGERS return to their business and ALDERMAN and
ALICE continue.
ALDERMAN: Wholl be first to step into Fitzwarrens Fantasy Store?
ALICE:
I will father.
ALDERMAN: My dear, you already live there.
ALICE:
Oh, well, Im sure we can find somebody wholl come and look at a nice
bargain.

DAME:

Hello mums and dads, boys and girls. (Audience response) Come on,

bit. Hello boys and girls. (Audience response) Fantastic, right up there
with the best of them. Now for the grown-ups. Hello mums and dads.
(Audience response) Oh dear, you are sounding very repressed

tonight. But never mind, onwards and upwards. My name is Sarah


Sponge, middle name: Victoria! I work in Fitzwarrens Fantasy Store
baking all the delicious treats youll find there. Im the Mary Berry of
panto-land!
ALDERMAN: Ive sampled many of her delights.
DAME:
Of course you have, you cheeky thing!
ALDERMAN: Now Alice, could you please go and fetch me my accounts?
ALICE:
Yes father, certainly. (She exits)
ALDERMAN: Now Sarah, we need to have serious words.
DAME:
Oh lord.
ALDERMAN: Its about Jack. I feel lately that hes starting to become complacent.
DAME:
Well the clue is in the name Alderman.
ALDERMAN: What do you mean?
DAME:
He is called Idle Jack, sir. Idle. Idle Jack.
IDLE JACK bounds on thinking hes been called.
IDLE JACK: Who called for me?
DAME:
Nobody dear. We were talking about you instead.
IDLE JACK: Oh thats really nice isnt it? Talking about somebody behind their back.
I have feelings, you know.
DAME:
Ooo, feelings for me?
IDLE JACK: Sorry to disappoint you Sarah but not those type of feelings.
DAME:
Rejected!
ALDERMAN: If we could get back down to business. Jack, whats going on lately?
Hardly any of the store jobs are getting done.
IDLE JACK: Well, you see, the thing is Im always so tired.
ALDERMAN: You do realise that if you dont buck up your ideas, youll be out.
IDLE JACK: I understand Alderman. Ill try my best.
ALDERMAN: Very well my boy. I best be off and see whats taking Alice so long with
my accounts. (He exits)
IDLE JACK: Sarah, theres something Ive been meaning to tell you.
DAME:
Righto.
IDLE JACK: Well, Ive been wondering whether I should get myself a new job.
DAME:
Righto.
IDLE JACK: So I was thinking I might put in an application for Tesco.
DAME:
Righto.
IDLE JACK: Sarah, why do you keep saying righto?
DAME:
Because youre stood on my right toe.
IDLE JACK: Oh, sorry Sarah.
DAME:
You will be if youre not careful. Now, have you done your chores?
IDLE JACK: What chores?
DAME:
Oh deary me. Jack, you were supposed to hoover the store as well as
ensuring that the bins are put out. Its collection day.
IDLE JACK: Well, do you want the true answer or the false answer?
DAME:
(To audience) He really is silly at times. (To Jack) I want the false
answer.
IDLE JACK: Really?
DAME:
No you fool! Of course I want the truth.
IDLE JACK: Well, I just couldnt really be bothered.

DAME:

Oh look, a newcomer to the town! (Approaches DICK) Hello there


handsome.
Oh hello. Im Dick.
Youre a what?
No, my dear lady, my name is Dick Whittington and Ive come to
London as Ive heard the streets are paved with gold. Ive come to get
my fortune.
Im sorry, my lad, but the streets arent paved with gold. Its just a wise
old tale.
So Ive come all this way for nothing?
Im afraid so.

The CAT enters, skulking around followed by ALDERMAN and ALICE. ALDERMAN
is chasing the cat.
ALDERMAN: Whats this cat doing here? Get away, vermin!
ALICE:
Father, its only a cat. Its not vermin. More like the rats!
ALDERMAN: Ah but I still dont like it sniffing around my store. It could do any
manner of things.
DAME:
All youve got to do is treat it kindly and itll treat you kindly back.
ALDERMAN: Whos this boy whos just strolled in?
DICK:
Im Dick Whittington. Nice to meet you sir.
ALDERMAN: Very good my boy. Now, does anybody know what can be done about
this cat?
IDLE JACK: Maybe its lost and cant find its way home. It makes me feel ever so
sad.
DAME:
Pull yourself together.
ALICE:
I reckon we need to find out who the cat is.
DICK:
(Approaching the cat) Hello.
CAT:
Meow.
DAME:
Whats that supposed to mean? I dont speak Cat-anese.
DICK:
Whats your name?
CAT:
Meow. Meow.
DICK:
Barry?
CAT:
Meow. Meow.
DAME:
Mildred?
CAT:
Meow. Meow.
IDLE JACK: Spartacus?
CAT:
Meow. Meow.
ALDERMAN: Polly?
CAT:
Meow. Meow.
ALICE:
Its a name similar to Polly. Shake the head for male, nod for female.
CAT:
(Shakes his head)
ALICE:
A male cat. How about Terry?
CAT:

ALDERMAN: Were getting closer.

His names Tommy. Tommy the cat.
Well, we got there in the end!
And I think Tommys lost. Look at him! Very thin and frail.
Meow. Meow.
There must be something we can do.
Why dont we feed Tommy up inside and then we can send him on his
way?
DAME:
An excellent idea. Ill give you that one Jack. Top form!
ALDERMAN: Whats news with you Dick? What lies ahead for you?
DICK:
I cant head home now. Ive come so far. I guess Ill have to find
somewhere to stay for tonight. I best head off before it gets dark.
ALICE:
Wait! Im sure Dick can stay with us here at the store? What do you
say, father?
ALDERMAN: Ill think about it.
ALICE:
Oh please father. Go on. It cant do any harm, surely?
ALDERMAN: Very well. Dick, you may stay at the store however youll have to find a
place to rest your head. On one of the counters or something. Also, Im
looking for an apprentice. I think youd be perfect for the job, Dick.
DICK:
Are you sure Alderman?
ALDERMAN: Indeed else I wouldnt have suggested it.
DICK:
Very well, Ill take it!
Theres a flash and KING RAT appears surrounded by his villainous rat gang.
KING RAT: Bow and grovel, bow and grovel. I said bow and grovel!
DAME:
Excuse me, King Rat, I thought youd disappeared from the land. Or
should I say, banished.
KING RAT: Did you really think youd keep me away for this long? Your simple
feeble minds arent a match for I, King Rat, am the greatest of them all.
DICK:
Whos King Rat?
ALDERMAN: The most evil rat this side of London. Always threatening to devour the
inhabitants of the town as well as ensuring that both him and his rat
gang overthrow London Town and take control of the population.
KING RAT: And how easy it shall be. Not before very long, I shall take control and
become Lord Mayor of London and all peasants will be in my power.
DAME:
Id rather die than be under your control King Rat.
ALICE:
Youre a wicked rat who deserves punishment for the terrible things
youve put upon our land.
KING RAT: Oh boo hoo! Whilst you think, by shouting at me, that youll get your
own way, I can safely say you wont, not while Im around.
DICK:
Then well just have to get rid of you wont we? One way or another.
KING RAT: Is that a threat, young boy? If youre feeling so brave as to take me on
then tell me your name.
DICK:
Im Dick Whittington. I came to London to seek my fortune. Id heard
the streets were paved with gold but found that to be untrue. However,
Im going to be sticking around for a little while longer and I shant let
you terrorise these poor people.
KING RAT: Oh yeah? And who exactly is going to defeat us?

DICK:

Tommy! Chase after them.

MUSICQ5:RAT
RATCHASE
CHASE
MUSICQ5:
There is a rat chase as TOMMY chases KING RAT and his gang. The others watch
in amazement at the scene unfolding before them.
KING RAT: Quick, my lovely rats, scarper!
KING RAT and his rat gang disappear rather quickly. TOMMY bounces back onto
stage with a hearty meow.
DICK:
Well done Tommy.
DAME:
Youve certainly done us proud.
ALDERMAN: What an extraordinary cat to chase off all those nasty creatures!
Tommy can definitely say with us here at the store for as long as he
needs to. Now I best be heading off, theres lots to be done today to
ensure all goes swell. Tommy, if you follow me I can give you a good
feed. Tata my peeps!
ALDERMAN exits followed by TOMMY bounding along behind him.
DAME:
ALICE:
DAME:

Well I guess I should make a start with some baking.


Oh Sarah, what are you going to be baking today?
My original Victoria Sponge, my dear. After all, Im named after it. I
should have known Id grow to be a lover of cakes.
IDLE JACK: And I can tell you enjoy eating them as well.
DAME:
You watch it, Jack. Youre going the right way for a smacked bottom.
As for that remark, you can come and be my assistant for the day.
Right, Ill see you all later.
SARAH and JACK exit leaving DICK and ALICE by themselves.
ALICE:

ALICE:

So, Dick, how are you finding London?


Its not a bad place. Not bad at all. However, if Im being honest, I was
hoping for it to be a bit more exciting.
Dont worry Dick. With Fitzwarrens Fantasy Store opening today, Im
sure London is going to be bustling with both people and activities.
There was something I wanted to tell you as a matter of fact.
Certainly Alice.
I dont know its like theres this strange connection between us as if
weve known each other all our lives, but we cant have done for weve
only just met. I felt it when I first laid eyes on you.
Thats weird Alice. Ive got the same feeling.
I think this could be the start of something very special.

MUSICQ: SOMETHING I NEED


DICK:

I HAD A DREAM THE OTHER NIGHT


ABOUT HOW WE ONLY GET ONE LIFE
Page 6

WOKE ME UP RIGHT AFTER TWO


STAYED AWAKE AND STARED AT YOU
SO I WOULDN'T LOSE MY MIND
AND I HAD THE WEEK THAT CAME FROM HELL
AND YES I KNOW THAT YOU COULD TELL
BUT YOU'RE LIKE THE NET UNDER THE LEDGE
WHEN I GO FLYING OFF THE EDGE
YOU GO FLYING OFF AS WELL
AND IF YOU ONLY DIE ONCE I WANNA DIE WITH
YOU GOT SOMETHING I NEED
IN THIS WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE THERE'S ONE KILLING ME
AND IF WE ONLY DIE ONCE, (HEY)
I WANNA DIE WITH YOU (YOU, YOU, YOU)
YOU GOT SOMETHING I NEED
IN THIS WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE THERE'S ONE KILLING ME
AND IF WE ONLY DIE ONCE, (HEY)
I WANNA DIE WITH YOU (YOU, YOU)
ALICE:

LAST NIGHT I THINK I DRANK TOO MUCH, YEAH


CALL IT OUR TEMPORARY CRUTCH, HEY
WITH BROKEN WORDS I'VE TRIED TO SAY
HONEY DON'T YOU BE AFRAID
IF WE GOT NOTHING WE GOT US (YEAH)
AND IF YOU ONLY DIE ONCE I WANNA DIE WITH
YOU GOT SOMETHING I NEED
IN THIS WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE THERE'S ONE KILLING ME
AND IF WE ONLY DIE ONCE, (HEY)
I WANNA DIE WITH YOU (YOU, YOU, YOU)
YOU GOT SOMETHING I NEED
IN THIS WORLD FULL OF PEOPLE THERE'S ONE KILLING ME
AND IF WE ONLY DIE ONCE, (HEY)
I WANNA DIE WITH YOU (YOU, YOU, YOU)

BOTH:

AND IF WE ONLY DIE ONCE, (HEY)


I WANNA DIE WITH YOU!

The lights fade down on DICK and ALICE as they share a loving hug.

Scene Two

(King Rats Dungeon)

As the lights rise on King Rats Dungeon, it is repulsive and full of horrid objects. It is
very dark and dim. KING RAT comes into view sat in his royal throne.
MUSICQ7: TRANSITION INTO KING RATS DUNGEON
KING RAT: (Singing) LIVING IN THE SUNLIGHT, LOVING IN THE MOONLIGHT
HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME (Noticing the audience) Oh its you
lot! Who gave you permission to fix your eyes upon my dungeon? Still,
Page 7

it is lovely, wouldnt you agree? (Audience response) Oh yes it is.


(Audience response, to and fro) Its strange, when you think about it,
how as rightful ruler of London, I am despicably treated. Does nobody
ever care about how my rats and I have had to live for centuries? Its all
the humans. Those poor, poor humans with their feeble ways and
humble opinions always trying to get the sympathy vote. But nobody
ever takes a moment to think about us rats, especially I, King Rat. My
life has been one full of misery and despair. And yet nobody bats an
eyelid or cares to listen to me. Still, I must remain strong and keep
pushing through the hard times, like this
MUSICQ8: LIVING IN THE SUNLIGHT
KING RAT: I'M SO HAPPY!
AHA! HAPPY GO LUCKY ME!
I JUST GO MY WAY,
LIVING EVERYDAY!
I DON'T WORRY!
WORRYING DON'T AGREE,
THINGS THAT BOTHER YOU,
NEVER BOTHER ME!
THINGS THAT BOTHER YOU,
NEVER BOTHER ME
I FEEL HAPPY AND FINE!
AHA!
LIVING IN THE SUNLIGHT,
LOVING IN THE MOONLIGHT
HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME!
HAVEN'T GOT A LOT,
I DON'T NEED A LOT
COFFEE'S ONLY A DIME
LIVING IN THE SUNLIGHT,
LOVING IN THE MOONLIGHT,
HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME!
JUST TAKE IT FROM ME,
I'M JUST AS FREE AS ANY DAUGHTER.
I DO WHAT I LIKE,
JUST WHAT I LIKE,
AND HOW I LOVE IT!
I'M RIGHT HERE TO STAY
WHEN I'M OLD AND GRAY,
I'LL BE RIGHT IN MY PRIME!

I'M JUST AS FREE AS ANY DAUGHTER.

I'M RIGHT HERE TO STAY,

I'LL BE RIGHT IN MY PRIME,
LIVING IN THE SUNLIGHT,
LOVING IN THE MOONLIGHT,
HAVING A WONDERFUL TIME!
It is wonderful being a rat! Now, we must get down to the matter at
hand. That young Dick took a step too far trying to get one over on me.
Therefore he shall have to go and I have just the plan. When theyre all
sleeping in that puny little store of theirs, I shall stumble my way in,
steal the Aldermans petty cash and flee the scene before anybody
finds out who the culprit is. When Dick wakes, theyll all think its he
who has stolen the money. Oh, this is too perfect and theres not a
moment to lose. I must make haste and before very long, those
suffering fools will be throwing Dick out on his ear, the unfortunate boy.
Hell be heartbroken. But life goes on, doesnt it and one day soon I
shall rule London Town.
Blackout.

Scene Three

(Inside Fitzwarrens Fantasy Store)

The lights rise up on Fitzwarrens Fantasy Store. The stage is separated into two
parts for this scene: one half is the main body of the store, the other half is the
kitchen. To begin with, ALDERMAN FITZWARREN and ALICE are situated in the
main body of the store.
ALDERMAN: Bargains galore. Such wonders to behold! Why, my dear, Ive just sold
a rather fine looking pearl necklace for just 10.99.
ALICE:
Thats awfully cheap, isnt it father?
ALDERMAN: Nonsense my dear. When youve been in business as long as I have,
you really understand how to pull off a bargain. After all, the customer
is always right.
ALICE:
Except for when they rip you off father. You do realise that by giving
the customer exactly want they want, youre gaining very little money.
ALDERMAN: Oh bother, I have been a bit of a fool.

Page 9

DAME:

Time to get a move on with my spiffing Victoria Sponge. Now, Jack,


you do everything I say and nothing will go wrong. Understood?
IDLE JACK: Completely understood, maam.
DAME:
Dear Jack, why are you calling me maam?
IDLE JACK: Well its like being back at school isnt it? I always loved cooking class.
DAME:
Very well, you may call me whatever you like as long as you dont call
me late for dinner. Now, Jack, can you pass me the flour?
JACK produces DAME with a flower, not flour.
DAME:

What am I supposed to do with that, silly boy? The self-raising flour is


what Im after.
IDLE JACK: Oh right, that type of flour.
JACK passes her the flour which she measures and puts into the bowl.
DAME:

Next Im going to need four eggs. Bring them over here for me and
separate them.

JACK brings them over and separates them into two eggs on one side of the table
and the other two on the opposite side.
DAME:
No Jack. Separate them into the bowl!
IDLE JACK: Oh right! Im not a total fool.
DAME:
Not a total one, no.
ALDERMAN: The futures looking bright!
