The World famous, record breaking, eye popping, lung busting, side splitting, knee trembling Royal Court Christmas show is back and it’s set to be the best Christmas show yet! 

Dick was lying in his bed when a scary hairy fairy came to him in a dream. If he were to go to London then he would become Lord Mayor! How brill is that? But hang on… London’s 212 miles away and it’s full of divvies. Why not become Lord Mayor of Liverpool instead! It’s a lot nearer. 

As he gets closer to town he runs into a bunch of proper rats who want to stop him. Ably supported by his cat, Galore, he needs to overcome all odds and beat King Rat to get his hands on that big, gold chain. As long as he believes then nothing can stop him. Except possibly a bit of plague. 

Written by Kevin Fearon and with Musical Direction from Howard Gray the team that brought you The Scouse Cinderella, The Scouse Snow White and The Scouse Jack & The Beanstalk!
