DICK AND DOM KICK OFF HALF TERM FUN AT THE CUSTOMS HOUSE
Comedy double act Dick and Dom are bringing their unique show to The Customs House during the October half term holiday.
Dick and Dom Live! splits the audience in two and pits the pair – and their half of the audience – against each other in a series of madcap challenges.
The show is a live 60-minute adaptation of their hit TV show Dick and Dom in Da Bungalow and has toured since 2013, embarking on its first full UK tour in April this year.
It stops off at The Customs House in Mill Dam, South Shields, on Saturday, October 21, with two shows at 2pm and 5pm.
Dom said: “Our show is called Dick v Dom and it is a unique experience. It basically involves every single person in the audience. It brings out the big kid inside of you.”
Dick added: “It splits the audience into two halves and it is a fight between two sides to see who can win. It is so fast paced. Oh, and you might get dirty!”
Previous shows have featured games like My Bogies Lie Over The Ocean, Dick and Dom’s Crowd Surfing, Musical Splatues and Two Word Tango. Dick and Dom’s other TV credits include Are You Smarter Than a 10 Year Old?, The Legend of Dick and Dom, Dick and Dom’s Funny Business and Absolute Genius with Dick and Dom, for which they won the Children’s Presenter BAFTA Award in 2014.
They made their big screen debut in Horrid Henry: The Movie in 2011, as the hosts of fictional game show 2Cool4School, and appeared as King Arthur and Patsy in the West End revival of Spamalot, from December 2013 to January 2014.
Wendy the Witch then flies in for her latest show, Wendy the Witch and the Long Lost Spell, from Monday, October 23 to Wednesday, October 25, at 2pm each day.
Wendy has been trapped inside her family home by The Goblin King’s curse and there’s only one way out – and that’s with magic.
However, the only spell that can help her was lost many full moons ago. Can she find it? Will her jealous sister be willing to help? Will she escape?
For older children and fans of Harry Potter, there’s Harry Panto and the Chamber Pot of Secrets, on Thursday, October 26, at 1.30pm and 6pm.The parody pantomime production follows three young magicians as they fight the dark lord in a spell-binding tale of good versus evil, featuring magical illusions, pop songs and things that go bump in the night.
