Midlands Today presenter Joanne Malin is returning to the stage for the Lichfield Garrick’s Christmas show.
The reporter will appear as the Evil Queen in Snow White and the Magic Mirror.
She has previously appeared in the theatre’s 2007 production of Cinderella and its 2008 show Dick Whittington.
Joanne said: “Journalists are often accused of only bringing people bad news and this Christmas there will be no good news from me, as this time I’m the baddie and I’m really looking forward to being bad!
“I look forward to hearing some very loud booing from panto lovers.”
Adrian Jackson, the Lichfield Garrick’s chief executive, added: “I’m delighted to welcome Joanne back to the team and look forward to working with her in this very different role.”
Snow White and the Magic Mirror is playing at the Lichfield Garrick from December 5 to January 5. Tickets start at £12.50 for children and £20 for adults, and can be booked online or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
