Panto Aladdin hits Basingstoke
Date Posted: 16/12/13
The Anvil, Basingstoke, is currently home to pantomime Aladdin, which kicked off a run at the venue on December 12th this year.
The panto features Colin Baker, who appeared on TV screens as the lead in Doctor Who between 1983 and 1986, and more recently turned up on ITV1 reality TV favourite, I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.
It is set to be in place at The Anvil until January 5th next year, and tells the story of Abanazer - who Baker plays - attempting to take over the world by obtaining a magic lamp.
As well as Baker, the family-friendly show features Derek Moran, who plays Wishee Washee, Aladdin's brother and Ian Good, who plays Widow Twankey.
It's one of many pantos currently being presented all over the country, perfect for people on Christmas breaks at the moment to enjoy. For example, Jack and the Beanstalk, featuring Steps' Ian 'H' Watkins, is currently taking to the stage at the Lyceum, Sheffield.
