Panto season is almost here...oh yes it is

It may still be summertime, but tickets to Aladdin, Belfast Waterfront’s Christmas pantomime have been selling like hot cakes.

Pantomime wishes will come true at Aladdin which looks set to be the family adventure to top them all this Christmas. Children will love every magical moment … and so will the grown-ups.

Last year’s pantomime sold out in double quick time so it pays for families to book early and also benefit from their first choice of performance dates, times and the best seats available,

Directed by Lisa May and produced by Martin Lynch, Aladdin is brought to life by a fabulous cast headed up by everyone’s favourite panto dame, Ross Anderson-Doherty, as Widow Twankey.

Will the Genie of the lamp grant Aladdin three wishes and save him from the clutches of the evil Abanazar (played by the amazing Gerard McCabe)? And will Aladdin and Princess Jasmine live happily ever after? If you want to know, you’ll have to go!
