The 2011/2012 pantomime at the Thameside Theatre, Grays is Aladdin starring Dean Gaffney (from EastEnders and I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here) as Wishee Washee and Brian Belo (Winner of Big Brother 8 and Presenter of Big Brother’s Little Brother) as the Genie and Wain Douglas as Widow Twankey! It runs for 53 performances between Wednesday 7 December 2011 to Wednesday 7 January 2012.
Aladdin will be produced by Polka Dot Pantomimes this year – who are well known for their incredible production values and high standards. There will be new scenery, new costumes, new faces in our all star cast and plenty of audience participation that will keep audiences of all ages entertained and amused. The Thameside Panto is a real story with real characters – not just a string of variety acts. Aladdin is a classic story that children will know from various film and television versions. There will be some fantastic singing and dancing and a large dose of comedy, sparkle, magic and spectacle thrown in for good measure!!
