“If you are looking for a family outing to get you in the festive spirit, this year’s panto has the magic to get the children dancing in the aisles.” Lancashire Post
Preston Guild Hall will make all your wishes come true with this years magical family pantomime Aladdin.
Welcoming back the hilarious comedian Phil Walker, who has once again written and directed the show as well as starring as Aladdin’s brother Wishee Washee. His productions of Sleeping Beauty and Jack and the Beanstalk received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike and we’re delighted that he’s with us again this year.
Joining Phil on stage is top TV trickster Paul Zenon, playing the evil sorcerer Abanazar. Paul has over thirty years’ experience in performing, specialising in comedy and magic, so audiences will need to a keep a very close eye on him! He’s behind you!
Keeping Paul on his toes is Carl Tracey, playing the role of Aladdin. Carl is most well known for being ‘that yellow one with the hat’; 1/5 of the popular children’s musical group Go!Go!Go! Plus local Blackpool lass Stacey McClean is playing Princess Jasmine. Stacey was a member of the successful pop sensation S Club Juniors so her vocal talents are certainly going to impress audiences and have them singing in their seats.
Following his Charter Theatre debut as Fleshcreep in last year’s hit show, Preston lad Marvyn Dickinson is back in a different guise as PC Pong. Marvyn is a very versatile character actor and CBBC fans will know him well from his appearances in BAFTA award winning Class Dismissed (now in its second series).
Taking on the role of the Slave of the Ring is one of the finest comedic comperes in the country, Jonathan Mayor. As a headline act, Jonathan sets the stage alight with his razor sharp audience banter and stunning charisma. He has been known to reduce any audience to hysterics whether they are Radio 4 listeners or a Friday night crowd!
Finally, the Guild Hall are delighted to welcome the talented actor Jeffrey Longmore as Widow Twankey! Jeffrey is a sought after actor with over 30 years’ experience. He’s no stranger to playing panto dames, but has also appeared in well-known TV shows such as Coronation Street and Emmerdale.
The reviews are in! What the critics think of Aladdin…
5 STARS! “Superb entertainment for all!” What’s Good To Do
“…fantastic good all round entertainment, suitable for children aged up to 100!” North West End
“…a very modern and funny twist on this much-loved fairy tale.” Lancashire Post
