Aladdin marks Bristolian Josie’s pantomime debut in the role, which she will share with Carol and star in from December 19 to January 6.

The streets of Peking will be in undeniably safe hands this Christmas as street dance sensation Flawless are set to star as the Peking Police Squad.

Returning for his fourth year, comedian Andy Ford will star as Aladdin’s hapless brother Wishee Washee.
