ST ALBANS pantomime Aladdin opened last Friday – and tickets are flying out of the door.
The panto runs at the Alban Arena until Sunday, January 6 and it’s on course to be another record-breaker.
Due to phenomenal demand, nearly all of the pre-Christmas shows have already sold out.
Have no fear, as you can still treat yourself and others to the hottest ticket in town with the perfect remedy for the post-Christmas blues as there are still seats remaining later in the run.
CBeebies’ favourite Mister Maker (Phil Gallagher) and Shaun Williamson – best known for playing Barry in EastEnders – head a quality cast.
Bob Golding is also back this year, not only as the hilarious PC Pongo on stage but as the director of the panto.
The star of the Olivier Award winning West End comedy Morecambe is certainly no stranger to laughs after receiving rave reviews for last year’s performance.
Joining him is the beautiful Jemma Carlisle as Jasmine after playing Snow White last winter.
Taking on the hero’s role is Phil Gallagher, who enjoyed himself so much last year that he just had to come back.
So take a magic carpet ride to the Alban Arena and book your tickets now.
Tickets for non-peak performances cost £16.50 and concessions £14, while peak performances are £21.50 and £19.50, and concessions £19 and £17. Family shows cost £16.50.
