THE Civic Hall in Bedworth received an odd CV the other day from a very fine feline, Rascal, who had taken a previous owner's advice to 'go far and seek your fortune elsewhere'.

Rascal, originally a scrawny stray and now a much loved and pampered pet, felt that the bright lights of pantomime land were beckoning and he sought his own fame and fortune in requesting an audition for Tommy the Cat for the Civic Hall's Christmas pantomime, Dick Whittington.

He was confident that his purrfect Cat Vitae would appeal to director Freddie 'Parrot Face' Davis' softer side, and that his star quality would prove a big hit with both the cast and the audience.

Rascal was bewildered to discover that these odd humans have cast a girl -Emma Elizabeth -as Tommy and that he will be forced to spend Christmas on the settee in front of the Christmas tree next to a blazing log fire, waking occasionally for another turkey titbit.

Meanwhile, Emma Elizabeth is watching Rascal's antics so that her Tommy the Cat will know how to move properly and especially how to scare the rats.

Rascal is looking forward to Dick Whittington opening on December 12. Tickets available from the box office on 024 7637 6707.
