It was announced on 26 May that next panto season Lee Mead will be taking the title role in the "spectacular pantomime extravaganza", QDOS Pantomimes' flagship production of Aladdin at the Birmingham Hippodrome from Saturday 19 December 2015 to Sunday 31 January 2016.
We've seen climbing, floating, sword-fighting, archery, elephant-riding, spider-slaying, ditty-singing, dancing, romancing and much more besides from Lee in his previous panto roles as Jack in 2012/13, Robin Hood in 2013/14 and Prince Charming in 2014/15 - what new talents will be revealed this year!
Lee is joined in the cast by Marti Pellow as evil sorcerer Abanazar, Julian Clary as the Spirit of the Ring, Andrew Ryan as Widow Twankey and, returning to the Hippodrome for a third year, the very popular Matt Slack as Wishee Washee.
Michael Harrison, who has directed the record-breaking Hippodrome panto for the last four years, is back at the helm and says:
"I am delighted that Marti, Julian, Lee, Matt and Andrew are starring in Birmingham's favourite pantomime. Each member of our stellar cast is hugely talented and, combined with the special effects, comedy and top-drawer production values, Aladdin promises to be another unmissable Christmas show at Birmingham Hippodrome, the home of pantomime."
Saturday 19 December 2015 - Sunday 31 January 2016
