Channel Five’s milkshake! favourite AMY THOMPSON joins ALEX FERNS and STEVE ROYLE to star in this year’s fabulous family pantomime ALADDIN at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre from Friday 3rd December
This year’s fun-filled family panto will star Amy Thompson (from Channel Five’s top children’s show milkshake!) as ALADDIN at Blackpool’s Grand Theatre from Friday 3rd December. She’s a real sweet treat for the kids!
Amy will be joined by Alex Ferns (EastEnders’ bad boy Trevor Morgan, Marco’s Kitchen Burnout winner) as Aladdin’s arch enemy Abanazar, Grand Theatre family favourite Steve Royle from BBC Radio Lancashire causing havoc as Wishee Washee and Douglas Mounce (known to many for his hilarious role in Terry and June) as the wonderful Widow Twankey.
Aladdin is a classic Arabian fantasy jam-packed with music and dance, fun and laughter, bravery and love, a magic lamp, a wicked uncle, an incredible genie and, of course, the dream that Aladdin will marry his very own beautiful princess.
Poor street urchin Aladdin is recruited by Abanazar the evil sorcerer who pretends to be his long lost uncle and asks him to retrieve a mysterious oil lamp. Will Aladdin see through the evil sorcerer's disguise? Will the beautiful princess Jasmine find true love? And what’s all the fuss about a dusty old lamp?
Fly with us on a magic carpet ride to Arabia in this fantastic family adventure! It’s a wish come true this Christmas!
