Panto is back in Doncaster, oh yes, it is – Aladdin’s magic carpet is set to fly into Doncaster this Christmas
We are so excited to have welcomed the cast of Aladdin to Cast, Doncaster’s theatre ready for rehearsals.
Our Christmas panto has quickly become a Doncaster family tradition and we know that audiences travel from further afield, especially families with Deaf children, who can really enjoy our fully British Sign Language integrated show.
We were so sad not to be able to put on a pantomime last Christmas because of the pandemic and now our Christmas wishes are set to come true thanks to the return of the much-loved Doncaster pantomime at Cast.
This year’s show is set to be the best yet and guests will be taken on a dazzling magic carpet ride full of adventure, comical moments, mischief and mayhem from Friday 26 November through to Friday 31 December.
The classic musical tale of Aladdin, set in a world where Peking meets Doncaster, will tell the story of Aladdin falling in love with Princess Jasmine and meeting the mysterious genie of the lamp – all the while trying to save the world from the cunning sorcerer.
With striking sets, dastardly plots and a spectacular theatrical cast, this Deaf friendly pantomime will be a hit for all the family this Christmas. It comes as a welcome festive celebration for theatre fans following a difficult year for performances and theatres.
Aladdin is a pantomime that is always a firm family favourite, full of laughter, sparkle and all the fun of the theatre. It’s fantastic for us to be able to offer this show after lockdown has brought such a challenging time for theatres.
The cast for this year’s Aladdin includes:
Lladel Bryant – Aladdin
Connor Bryson – Lemmi the Lemur
Ian Crowe – Abanazar
Sophie Ellicott – Wishee / Jean Genie of the Lamp
Katie Erich – Scheherazade / Empress
Alyce Liburd – Jasmine / Spirit of the Ring
Mark Stratton – Widow Twankey
Connor Wood – Understudy
Isabelle Betts – Understudy
Both Connor and Sophie are making a welcome return to Cast after starring in Cinderella and Ian returns after starring at the evil Sherriff in Robin Hood.
There will be relaxed performance on 2 December at 10am for schools or 28 December at 6pm for the public. Cast will also hold socially distanced performances of Aladdin on 27 November at 7pm and on 12 December at 6pm. A captioned and audio described performance will take place on Saturday 4 December at 3pm.
We hope that lots of families will come and join us in celebrating Christmas with a trip to the theatre for lots of laughs and festive fun.
