Tickets cost £7 and £5 and are available by calling The Princess Box Office on 01278 784464.

The cat is played by Izzy, Horton - George, Mayzie - Olivia, Gertrude - Rachael, Jo Jo - Katy, and the Sout Kanagaroo - Natalie.

The directing team are James and Sandy Ballantyne, while Vicky Adams is co-ordinator, Frances Webb is vocal coach, costumes have been created by Christine Hart, Set design by Luke Adams and choreography by Sarah Loveridge.
