Pantomime season is up on us again - oh yes it is! And there’s few funnier around than the Belgrade’s annual offering.
Following in the success of last year’s record-breaking production of Jack and the Beanstalk, Aladdin features all the hallmarks of another successful traditional panto — spectacular scenery, incredible costumes, hilarious slapstick and plenty of audience participation.
Together, Iain Lauchlan and Craig Hollingsworth make a hilarious partnership, ably supported by a talented cast and crew, including Morna Macpherson as Aladdin and William Finkenrath as the Emperor of China.
To kick your festive celebrations off in style, you should add tickets to Aladdin onto your Christmas wishlist.
It’s a fantastic night out and guaranteed fun for the entire family.
Aladdin runs on the Belgrade’s Main Stage until Saturday January 10.
