Lutterworth drama group to grant wishes of panto fans

Rugby Editorial 12th Jan, 2017   0

LUTTERWORTH’S Wycliffe Drama Group will perform Aladdin as its annual pantomime, opening on Thursday January 19 at Lutterworth College.

The drama group, former winners of the Award for Best Pantomime in Leicestershire and Rutland, promise ‘a traditional family pantomime guaranteed to delight an audience of all ages’.

The story, set in old Peking, sees Aladdin (Nathaniel Cooper) do battle with the evil Abanazar (Russ Crooks), aided by an assortment of genies (Duncan Sanderson and Julian Mitchell), in order to win his fair princess (Lois-Anna Hunt).

The large cast also includes Dickie Wood as Widow Twankey, Charlie Dennis as Wishee Washee, and performers from the Helen Warrington School of Dance.

The panto is directed by Richard Hill, produced by Dawn Crooks and features a host of slapstick comedy.

Performances run from January 19-21, including a matinee performance on the Saturday. Tickets (£10 each, £8 concessions) are available at Max Electrical in Lutterworth or by calling 01455 554504.
