Amelia is joined in the cast by CBBC star Barney Harwood as the show’s heartthrob Huntsman.

Barney is a well-loved TV presenter, most noted for his appearances on Prank Patrol and Blue Peter on CBBC and, most recently, Celebrity MasterChef.

Barney admits he’s a bit cheeky, a character trait which lends itself perfectly to pantomime.

Fellow CBBC man, Christopher Johnson - best known as Yonko - will play Muddles.

Christopher is back by popular demand after previous performances in Aladdin and Alice in Wonderland.

Joey Howard, makes his New Theatre Royal debut as flirtatious Nurse Flossy.

Taking the title role of Snow White will be Sophie Gaudie, who joins the cast after a string of stage performances around the UK.

And completing the principal cast is Janine Johnson as the Wicked Queen who is, by turn, both cruel and also totally fabulous.

An acclaimed singer, Janine has collaborated with some of the world’s biggest artists including Paloma Faith, Take That, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Who and even the late George Michael.
