“Oh Yes It Is!” Panto supports ‘Cancer Is A Drag’

LP Creatives (the theatrical team behind the Christmas pantomime) are proud to announce that they will be supporting the charity ‘Cancer is a Drag’ with its new song release ‘Christmas Time With You’.

Cancer is a Drag is a registered charity who’s main aim is to provide much needed financial and wellbeing support to people living with cancer (and their family).

Set up by its Founder, Alan Bugg, whilst on his own cancer journey and going through treatments, the charity is born out of first-hand experience of the difficulties people living with the disease face that are often overlooked.

“It’s a great Christmas song!” Tom (pantomime producer) says “It has all the right elements – a catchy tune, a singalong style and of course those all-important jingle bells!”

“We will be making the song a part of the show at the Ropetackle and also holding a collection at the end of each performance – hopefully the audience will appreciate what we are trying to do and we can raise some much needed funds for this worthy cause”.

“Christmas is a time for thinking of others and giving something back – and what better time to spread some Christmas cheer than during a pantomime?”

Dick Whittington runs from 13-31 December 2017.
