Plummer Wood Productions presents ALADDIN, a traditional pantomime at the Shaw Theatre London, from Thursday 11 December 2014 – Starring BEN RICHARDS as ABANAZAR and Britain’s Got Talent’s LA VOIX as WIDOW TWANKEY.

Following last year’s immensely successful production of Cinderella, Plummer Wood Productions is pleased to return to the Shaw Theatre in Kings Cross with a new production of Aladdin from Thursday 11th December, starring Ben Richards as Abanazar and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist La Voix as Widow Twankey.

Aladdin is a traditional pantomime for the whole family, featuring a live band, stunning sets, glittering costumes, and plenty of audience participation. Aladdin promises to be a truly spectacular pantomime, and one of the only traditional pantomimes in central London. So get ready to take a magical carpet ride on an enchanting journey you’ll remember forever!

Ben Richards will star as Abanazar. Ben recently starred in the UK Tour of Rock of Ages, with other recent theatre including leading roles in Oliver! at Sheffield Crucible, the UK Tour of 9 to 5, Priscilla Queen of the Desert at The Palace Theatre, Guys And Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre, Grease at the Victoria Palace Theatre and Saturday Night Fever at the London Palladium. Ben is well known for TV roles including PC Nate Roberts in The Bill, Justin in Holby City and Bruno Milligan in Footballers’ Wives.

La Voix will star as Widow Twankey. La Voix is a 2014 Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist, whose accolades include Best Drag Act at this year’s London Cabaret Awards. A vivacious performer with live spine-tingling vocals, La Voix’s uncanny ability to switch between the vocal styles of Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland or Cher with the click of a finger leaves audiences mesmerised.

The cast also features Justin Thomas (Wicked, Dirty Dancing) as Aladdin, Helen Kurup (CBBC’s I Dream) as Princess Jasmine, Matthew Wesley (From Here to Eternity, Cabaret) as Genie of the Lamp, Lauren Storer as Genie of the Ring, Paul Lawrence Thomas as Wishee Washee, Oliver Broad as PC Pongo and Mark Lyminster as Emperor of China.
