The first members of the cast for this year’s Lichfield Garrick pantomime have been confirmed.

Sam Rabone return for his seventh year as Dame Nelly in Snow White.

He will also be directing the show for the fourth year running.

“I’m so excited to be back at the Lichfield Garrick – and for me, it’s a first as it’s my first Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and I can’t wait.

“This show is going to be hilarious, from an evil Queen to a henchman so hench he’s sporting a dodgy moustache, we’ve got something for everyone.

“I’ll also be directing with my favourite team of people – choreography from the legendary Simon Barnum and music from the super Andrew Hopkins.

“We are in for the biggest and best show Lichfield has seen in years. I can’t wait, and I hope to see everyone there.”

Joining Sam in the cast are two more familiar faces.

Maria Conneely, who starred as Lizzie in last year’s All New Adventures of Peter Pan, will be appearing alongside George Akid, who appeared as an Ugly Sister in the 2019 production of Cinderella.

George said:

“I am thrilled to be returning to one of my favourite places.

“I had such an awesome time in Cinderella back in 2019, and I can’t wait to be getting my moustache for Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.”
