Cat, who was the narrator of the CBeebies TV Christmas panto, will take on the role of Princess Jasmine.

The Lichfield Garrick’s artistic director, Tim Ford, who will also direct Aladdin, said: “We are delighted to welcome Cat to Lichfield to join us as the beautiful Princess Jasmine.

“I’m also very pleased to announce that local actress Loula will be joining us, reinforcing our continued commitment to cast local artists.

“Loula is the most incredible vocalist and I know that the people of Lichfield are in for a real delight.”

Sam Rabone has already been confirmed as Widow Twankey after starring in last year’s production of Sleeping Beauty.

“I can’t wait to be back onstage in Lichfield with my comedy co-star Ben Thornton,” he said. “From speaking with CBeebies star Rebecca Keatley who was in Sleeping Beauty, Cat is amazing and I can’t wait to meet her.

“Loula is someone I have wanted to work with since we first met and finally this year we can make the dream come true. Roll on panto!”

Aladdin runs at the Garrick from November 30 until December 31. For ticket details visit or call the box office on 01543 412121.
