Aladdin at the Brighton Centre – Christmas Panto 2022

Brighton production company E3 is bringing family panto back to its home city with a stunning new production of Aladdin.

Running at the Brighton Centre from Thursday 22nd to Tuesday 27th December (excluding Christmas Day), Christmas panto favourite Aladdin incorporates plenty of spectacular elements including jaw-dropping sets, dazzling costumes and magical special effects.

Featuring a hugely talented West End cast including Anita Dobson (Frozen, Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Milly, Hello Dolly!, Calendar Girls. Anita also starred as  Angie Watts in BBC’s Eastenders),  Mark Inscoe (Evita, Sweeney Todd, Priscilla – Queen of the Desert, Phantom of the Opera, Anything Goes, The Rat Pack – Live from Las Vegas, Sunset Boulevard, Funny Girl), alongside BBC Radio Sussex presenter Allison Ferns, the audience will be whisked away on the magical tale of Aladdin and Princess Jasmine as they embark on their love story. In true panto tradition, this one is packed full of hilarious comedy capers from Aladdin’s brother, Wishee Washee, and their eccentric but much-loved mother, Widow Twankey – possibly the funniest Dame in the land!

During the theatrical adventure, the audience will be called upon to help Aladdin defeat the evil Abanazar, so panto goers should prepare their best gut-busting boos and loudest singing voices; they may even be asked to help on stage.

David Hill, Producer and Director of Aladdin at The Brighton Centre, commented:

“We are utterly thrilled to be bringing Aladdin to Brighton. We have been producing pantomime in the city since 2017, but to be able to take this production to the Brighton Centre and have our cast perform for thousands of people is an absolute honour. We can’t wait for the laughter, and the fun, and have this much-loved Christmas tradition in our hometown! It will truly be a magical adventure for children and adults of all ages.”
