Aladdin, Rotherham Civic
Panto time is in full swing, oh yes it is, and Shone Productions have flown their magic carpet into Rotherham for this classic show.
Join Aladdin and his friends for a beloved tale filled with love, comedy, laughter, music and lots of sparkle.
Cheer on Widow Twankey and her son Aladdin, as he tries to win the heart of the beautiful princess Jasmine.
They do battle with the evil magician Abanazar, who aims to be the master of the world.
It seems Aladdin’s wishes may never come true, but maybe with a little help from the Genie of the Lamp and the Slave of the Ring Aladdin will reach his ending of being happy ever after!
This production features ‘The Beast’ Mark Labbett from ITV game show The Chase as the evil Abanazar, who is joined by Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, comedian Ricky K, as Aladdin.
West End star Alexandra Hans is the beautiful Princess Jasmine and Mark Hudson returns by popular demand as dame Widow Twankey.
The show features a talented professional cast with beautiful scenery and costumes and the usual combination of song and dance routines and comedy, plus lots of audience participation accompanied by a live band. The show runs until January 11.

But fear not, help is at hand from Cinderella’s fairy godfather – yes, really!
