Aladdin

Aladdin is the big fun, not-to-be missed pantomime at the Princess Theatre, Torquay this Christmas.

Sam Callaghan (X Factor) plays Aladdin, the son of a poor laundry owner. He falls in love with the Princess, daughter of the Empress of China, Anne Hegerty, (ITV’s The Chase) and must prove himself a worthy suitor.

Aladdin, finding a rusty old lamp, becomes master of the Genie inside but the Wicked Sorcerer, Evil Abanazar played by Tom Owen also wants the lamp.

Can Aladdin and his friends, including Luke Friend (X Factor) as the Genie of the Ring, outwit the baddie, keep the lamp, marry the Princess and live happily ever after?

You’ll have to come and see to be sure. Hop on a magic carpet and fly to a magical place of mystery and enchantment, where carpets fly, genies live and love conquers all.

Cinderella

As Christmas approached Baron Hardup looked dejected. “Where can I take my family to see the best value for money pantomime in Torbay and how can I afford it?” he said to himself.

Suddenly there was a flash of light and a beautiful Fairy Godmother appeared before him. “Go to the Palace Theatre in Paignton this Christmas and see everybody’s favourite pantomime Cinderella” she proclaimed. “The £45,000 production has a total cast of 40 with experienced principals, excellent dancers, babes and chorus together with a live five piece professional band. There is a very witty script for all your favourite Cinderella characters, lavish costumes, modern songs, sparkling dance routines and a special appearance of Bob the Bunny”.

Baron Hardup sighed. “Is all this going to cost me a lot of money?” he said. The Fairy Godmother laughed. “It will only cost the same as last year as all the seat prices have been held at 2016 prices with tickets starting at just £11. The pantomime runs from the 21st December 2017 to the 3rdJanuary 2018 and you can book by going to the Palace Theatre or telephoning 01803 665800.” Suddenly the Fairy Godmother looked thoughtful. “Last year over 4100 patrons saw the Paignton Pantomime Productions panto at the Palace and tickets will undoubtedly sell fast again this year so – DON’T DELAY – BOOK TODAY” and with another flash of light she was gone.

Baron Hardup smiled his first smile in ages, quickly reached for his mobile and tapped 01803 665800 or 522330

Cinderella runs from the 21st December until 3rd Jan 2018

Be sure to also take a ride on the heritage GWR auto trains which are in operation all day, including, for part of the day, the ‘auto sandwich’, where the locomotive will be sandwiched between two auto carriages! The views of the line from the front vestible are not to be missed!
