Biggest panto yet at Lichfield Garrick

Published: 21 September 2018

Katrina Bryan from CBeebies’ Nina and the Neurons will play Fairy Bowbells in Lichfield Garrick’s 2018 panto Dick Whittington.

Returning to the Staffordshire theatre are Sam Rabone as Dolly the Cook and Ben Thornton as Silly Billy.

They will be joined by Ashley Emerson as Dick Whittington, Ieuan Rhys as Alderman Fitzwarren, Joanne Heywood as the baddie Queen Rat, Becca Lane as Alice Fitzwarren, Lucy Parry as Tommy the Cat and members of the Garrick’s juvenile company.

Rabone said, “have we got some treats for you this year—the biggest slosh scene yet. This year I’m directing too and I can’t wait to bring the funniest and biggest panto yet to Lichfield.”

Written by Paul Hendy, Dick Whittington will be the third panto at the Garrick to be co-produced with Evolution Pantomimes. It opens on Thursday 29 November and runs until Saturday 5 January 2019.
