Photo: VANITA PRASAD By VANITA PRASAD Audiences are asked to boo the baddies and cheer the goodies at this year's 3D Christmas pantomime performance of Dick Whittington and Bob the Cat. Writer and director Adam Fresco came up with the idea of a 3D theatre show after watching the movie Avatar. He says the 3D effect comes from custom paint and some special tricks that he's keeping to himself. The pantomime follows a young boy named Dick Whittington as he ventures out from his home town of Titibumbum to the supercity of Orcland to realise his dream of becom- ing mayor. On his journey he meets Bob the Cat who is a feline by day and a superhero by night. Mr Fresco says any similarities between Titirangi and Titibumbum are coincidental. He says attention to the traditions of pantomime mean some girls will play boys and vice versa. That tradition dates back to Shake- speare's Twelfth Night,'' he says. In the performance Dick Whitting- ton will be played by Laura Penswick. She is joined by a cast of 28 other local actors. They range from nine to so-old- they-won't-tell,'' Mr Fresco says. He says the pantomime is great way for adults to introduce children to the theatre. It moves at a ferocious child friendly pace. My five-year-old has given it his approval, so if it can keep his attention it can keep anyone's.'' The show will be on every Wed- nesday to Saturday night at Titirangi's Lopdell House till December 17. Visit www.titirangitheatre.co.nz for more information or to buy tickets visit www.iticket.co.nz.
