The BAFTA nominated Just Good Friends star will play the despicable and cunning baddie King Rat in Dick Whittington and His Cat. Paul will be spending Christmas in Cambridge to wreak havoc in true panto style. Speaking of his upcoming role, Paul said: Its more fun to play villains than goodies. When I was young, I played all the goodies, but its so much more fun to be booed because you always get a reaction. Its easier to be nasty than nice. Paul is joined by Matt Crosby, who makes a welcome return to the Arts Theatre stage to play Sarah the cook alongside Rob Rees as Idle Jack and Holly Easterbrook in the title role of Dick Whittington. Dick Whittington opens on December 1 and runs until January 8, 2017. Tickets are priced from £14- £39 and are available from the box office on 01223 503333 or online at: www.cambridgeartstheatre.com.
