The witch has something to say about this and Dick Whittington is thrown out of London never to return.
If it had not been for his chance meeting with Captain Fishlock, played by Bernie Waspe, and the adventures they have, history could have been very different.
Chris Hutchinson, of the society said: "We had such a success with our last production of Wait Until Dark and we would love to continue with that this Christmas."
The show runs from tomorrow to January 4 at the Regal Theatre, Stowmarket.
