Panto season returns with Aladdin at Leamington's Spa Centre

PANTO is back at Leamington’s Spa Centre this year with the magical family-friendly Aladdin.

The show, which runs from Saturday December 4 to Sunday January 2, sees JP McCue and Sean Dodds return as Dame Dolly and Aladdin, and they are joined by Denise Pitter as The Empress, Jenny Perry as Princess Jasmine, David Haydn as Abanazar, Nathan Guy as the Genie, Kirstie Smith as Spirit of the Ring/Ensemble with Tom Fisher-Macvine and Ellie Moloney as Ensemble.

It has been a hectic year for JP who came straight into rehearsals from the hit UK tour of Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.

And as well as touring he found time to write the script for Aladdin alongside director Janice Dunn.

JP said: “I can’t wait to be back at the Spa Centre. It just was not the same last year without panto and hearing the audience shouting “Hellloooooo Dolly” at me every day.

“I am really excited to be back in Leamington for Christmas this year and to be reunited with Sean.”

Sean added “I think this year will be really special as people missed out on a proper Christmas last year and panto is one of the main traditions many families have during the festive period.

“I hope everyone will be keen to come and make some fabulous memories with their friends and families again this year.”
