Here are some photos with lots of Croft and Perry actors together in Panto:
Only one London theatre will have the traditional Pantomime this Christmas and that's the London Palladium. The £350,000 production will be “Dick Whittington” starring the young comedian Jim Davidson. The stars of the show got together for the first time. Including lovely young blonde actress Jacqueline Redding.

I went and saw the one above and met Pam and Frank, plus Ian and Kenneth
I noticed that the Dick Whittington panto ran for at least six years in different venues with Lesley Joseph, John Nettles and Jeffrey Holland playing the same characters for five out of six years. However, the part of Alderman Fitzwarren was played by various actors including Bill Pertwee, Windsor Davies, Nicholas Parsons, Vince Hill and Hilary Minster.
