Add Aladdin to your Itinerary


Martin Dodd for UK Productions in association with Blackpool Grand Theatre proudly present our 2016/17 pantomime Aladdin.

A magical carpet ride awaits families this Christmas at the Blackpool Grand!

Blackpool Grand Theatre and UK Productions are proud to announce that TV soap regular Mark Moraghan (Holby City, Coronation Street) will don the cloak as evil villain Abanazer in this year’s Christmas panto Aladdin.

Starring alongside him will be Blackpool lad and BAFTA-winning CITV presenter Barney Harwood as Aladdin, the cheeky hero who sets off on a quest to win the heart of the beautiful Princess and retrieve a mysterious lamp.

Moraghan and Harwood head a cast of favourites including BBC Radio Lancashire and Grand panto legend Steve Royle as Wishee Washee and Radio Wave’s Hayley Kay, who returns to the panto for 2016 in the role as Slave of the Ring. Steve’s appearance will make this his fourteenth year on stage in the Grand Christmas panto! Playing alongside them will be the hilarious Philip Meeks as Widow Twankey and comedy magician Mark James as PC Pong.

Children and parents can follow all the action as Aladdin battles against Abanazer’s dark magic in this feel-good fantasy tale. Jam-packed with hit songs, hilarious dance routines, and another rollicking good script, this story of love, bravery and a magic lamp containing a certain special genie is the perfect way to experience the traditional magic of Christmas.

Will Aladdin and the princess ever find true love? Will the Princess tell her father of Abanazar’s evil plot? And, more importantly, will Widow Twanky ever get her washing done? Answers to all these and more await in the spectacular pantomime of the season – Aladdin – at Blackpool Grand Theatre!

Following last year's record-breaking pantomime, Snow White, you're guaranteed another year of spectacular sets, dazzling costumes and side-splitting comedy.
