This pantomime should have been produced last year-approximately on Boxing Day. We say ' 'approximately' because most Strutham Amateur productions are unavoidably postponed at the eleventh hour. ' Dick Whittington ' was first discussed at a meeting of the Society in May, 1926, and forgotten until July, 1927, when it was definitely decided to stage the entertainment on December 26. An epidemic of absentee-ism enforced yet another postponement, and the date on the tickets has been altered to April 9. Billing this outside broadcast as a ' rehearsal ' is merely playing for safety. Recent reports from Strutham tend to the supposition that the actual production cannot take place before midsummer (1929 ?)
