Dick Whittington will open on November 29 and feature CBeebies star Katrina Bryan alongside Garrick panto favourites Sam Rabone and Ben Thornton.

Joining the line-up are Ashley Emerson as Dick Whittington, Ieuan Rhys as Alderman Fitzwarren, Joanne Heywood as the baddie Queen Rat, Becca Lane as Alice Fitzwarren, and Lucy Parry as Tommy the Cat.

Sam Rabone, who play the dame as well as directing the show, said: “It was so good to meet all the cast at the launch.

“Lichfield is in for a treat. Katrina is just fabulous and I can’t wait to see her cast her magic over the audiences. And who’d have thought it – the garlic bread to my lasagne, the Yorkshire pudding to my beef, the lemon to my meringue – Ben Thornton is back too and I can’t wait to get started with him again.”

Dick Whittington will run until January 5. For tickets, visit
