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.
The cast of Aladdin enjoyed a whirlwind shopping trip around Thurrock on Saturday. They visited Sainsburys Chafford Hundred, where they shopped for chocolates, helped pack shopping bags and entertained the crowds before they were whisked off in a golden limo to Partyman World in Lakeside and then into Lakeside itself! They met lots of people along the way and posed for photos with the shoppers and did some shopping for themselves – Widow Twankey could not believe all the goodies she found and has already asked for a return visit!
