Two more fantastic cast members have been announced to join this formidable team. Firstly, Steven Pinder who will be playing Abanazaar.

Steven appeared in the Corn Exchange’s very first panto back in 2010 and again in 2013; and they’re thrilled to have him return for the 10th panto. Steven is best known for his role in Brookside where he played Max Farnham in the series from 1990-2003.

He then moved to theatre and played many roles including the Wizard in the West End show Wicked for many years.

They are also excited to welcome Divine Cresswell, who will be playing Princess So-Shi. Divine is an actor and dancer and performed in many West End shows including Charlie & The Chocolate Factory, Miss Saigon and South Pacific.

She has also appeared on film in Cuban Fury.

Widow Twankey wants a husband, evil Abanazaar wants the magic lamp, Aladdin wants adventure and Wishee Washee wants a new vest – can the Genie grant their wishes?

From the team behind last year’s production of Sleeping Beauty, Aladdin is at Alive Corn Exchange, Lynn from Tuesday, December 10, 2019 until Sunday, January 5, 2020.
