15-year old Milford Haven School pupil Seren Abbott has been cast in the role of Tommy the Cat in the upcoming pantomime Dick Whittington. She will star alongside acclaimed actress Laila Morse, who is set to play the role of Queen Rat.

Director Drew Baker said: "We are absolutely delighted that Seren will be bringing her immense talent and infectious energy to the role of Tommy," said.

"Seren has been a dedicated member of Vision Arts since its inception, demonstrating outstanding commitment, passion and continued development as a performer over the past few years. It therefore feels fitting that she should make her professional panto debut on our stage, and we know she will be a hit with audiences young and old."

A pupil at Milford Haven Comprehensive School, 15-year-old Seren has studied dance, acting, and singing at Vision Arts and Stagecoach. Her previous credits with Vision Arts include roles in productions of Matilda, Madagascar, Aladdin and We Will Rock You (Young@part).

Dick Whittington marks The Big Pembs Panto’s second professional pantomime at The Boulevard Theatre. The family-friendly show, featuring Abbott as the mischievous feline sidekick, will run from December 13 to 31, 2023.
