Aladdin, Hackney Empire
London’s No1 pantomime team is back with another smash-hit Christmas cracker. Once again written and directed by Susie McKenna, the UK’s leading writer and director of pantomimes and starring Clive Rowe, as Widow Twanky and Anna Jane Casey as Aladdin.
The classic adventure story of ALADDIN and his magic lamp is brought to life in Hackney Empire’s own unique style. With flying genies, a singing camel, tap dancing pandas and all the usual comic mayhem and magical musical performances, this all-singing, all-dancing, feel good festive treat promises to be the highlight of the year.
Full cast is, Clive Rowe (Olivier Award nominee for last year’s Mother Goose), Anna Jane Casey (Chicago, Forbidden Broadway, Sunday in the Park with George), Tameka Empson, Kat B, Tony Whittle, David Ashley, Matt Dempsey, Claire-Marie Hall, Stephen Emery, Josephine Melville and the voice of Sharon D Clarke.
Packed with spectacle, mayhem, comedy and brilliant music, Hackney Empire’s eleventh London pantomime is a must-see this Christmas.
