Aladdin panto by Duston Players

The festive sparkle of Aladdin and his magic lamp will be brought to the stage by the Duston Players from this week.

The group will be performing a traditional panto packed with favourite characters, such as Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee and the Genie.

Aladdin will be performed at Duston Community Centre, in Pendle Road, Northampton, at 7.30pm, on December 6, 7, 13 and 14 and at 2.30pm on December 7 and 14.

Director Debbie Malcolm said: “A lot of other groups don’t put on their pantos until January or February but we always perform in December as it’s part of the Christmas fun for us.”

Tickets cost £8 (or £30 for a family of four – any age). To book, call the box office on 01604 592987.
