A Gala Theatre Production

Thur 27 November 2014 - Saturday 3 January 2015
Written by Ben Crocker
Directed by Gareth Tudor-Price

We are delighted to announce that our spectacular pantomime is the mystical and madcap tale of Aladdin, a show full of North Eastern promise.

Telling the story of poor Widow Twankey (Chris Connel), her hunky son Aladdin (Matt McGoldrick) and daft laundry lad Wishee Washee (Paul Hartley). Meanwhile, evil baddie Abanazar (Neil Armstrong) is trying to get beautiful Princess Jasmine (Christina Andrew) away from her Emperor father (Robert Hudson) and the inept PC Pingpong (Viktoria Kay). He also wants to get his hands on the magic lamp and its crazy old Genie.

Created in the heart of Durham, Gala’s fabulous family pantomime comes complete with a terrific mix of mayhem and live music, laughter and surprises. Let Durham’s pantomime family make your festive season complete. It’s a wild, magical carpet ride of a show and tickets are already selling well, so book early to avoid disappointment.

From £8.00
