Hop on your magic carpet and join Aladdin for the adventure of a lifetime this Christmas!

Panto favourites Ignatius Anthony, Laura Curnick, Tim Freeman, Sarah Moss, Simon Pontin and Dale Superville are back along with some new faces.

Taking on the role of Aladdin will be Glenn Adamson. Glen’s most recent role was in the national tour of Secret Love: The Doris Day Story.

Making his Mercury Theatre dame debut will be Antony Stuart-Hicks. Gracie Lai and Colin Burnicle complete the cast.

Come with us to Old Peking where Aladdin dreams of marrying the beautiful Princess Jasmin and providing a better life for his mother, Widow Twanky, and brother, Wishee Washee.

With the promise of an inheritance to make him as rich as a prince, the wicked magician Abanazer has tricked Aladdin into helping him find a magic lamp hidden in a secret cavern high in the hills.

Aladdin soon finds himself trapped with only a battered old lamp for company. It’s only when he rubs the scruffy lamp that his adventure really begins!

Will Widow Twanky find romance? Will Wishee Washee prove his worth? Will Aladdin finally marry Princess Jasmin?

All will be revealed.
