Blackpool Pleasure Beach has added more performances of Aladdin, on Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd December at 11am. Plus, there will be a special signed performance this Wednesday 8th December at 10.30am for people with hearing impairments.

Aladdin is one of the most magical pantomimes ever written. It tells the story of a streetwise boy from Peking who finds a strange lamp at the market with hidden powers. The wicked wizard Abanazar wants to steal Aladdin’s magic lamp to help him become the most powerful wizard in the world and also wants to kidnap the beautiful Princess and make her his bride.

This production follows Aladdin's adventures as he gets entangled in the struggle between good and the audience sits back, claps, cheers, boos and finds the answers to these important questions: Will the Princess tell her father, the Emperor of Abanazar's evil plot? Will Aladdin save the day and find true love? Will the Widow Twanky ever get her washing done?

Starring Kevin Simm, lead singer of Wet, Wet, Wet, winner of The Voice and star of Liberty X, as Aladdin, the show features a fabulous cast of singers and dancers including Del Wilden as Widow Twanky, Russ Brown as Wishee Washee, Nigel Garton as Abanazar, Tuesday as So-Shy, Cheryl Naylor as The Empress, Sarah Ward as Slave of the Ring and Alexey Kofanov as Genie of the Lamp.

Aladdin the Pantomime is written and directed by Roger Hannah, Executive Producer is Amanda Thompson OBE.  Assistant Director is Alexa Robinson and the show is choreographed by Lynsey Brown.  Costumes, scenery and sets are all created by Stageworks Worldwide Productions.
