A more family-friendly pantomime promises to thrill audiences at the Playhouse this month.

Aladdin stars John Altman, famous for playing Nasty Nick in Eastenders, as Abanazar, as well as a host of other talented performers.

This year’s is the first to be completely produced in-house, spearheaded by manager Mark Thompson and head of technical Peter Tilke.

A new creative team has also been assembled, led by trained clown Michael Goble who is writing, singing and playing the role of Wishee Washee.

Many of the cast have been handpicked for their roles while the show has also been opened to the community with many local schoolchildren involved using talents such as cheerleading and gymnastics.

Mark Thompson said: “We’ve listened to the feedback received over the past few years and gone back to the grassroots and taken control of the production so we can ensure it meets with the expectations of the local community.

“We have a completely new creative team, led by Michael Goble, who is writing, directing and starring in this year’s production.

“This year the enthusiasm is on two key words – family and traditional.

“We’ve brought Mike in to ensure that we get a well-rounded, entertaining production aimed at all that attend, with a real focus on the family audience who want to see a traditional pantomime.”

Aladdin will be at the Playhouse, in High Street, from December 9-31.

Tickets, priced £11.75-21.95 are available from 01934 645544 or
