Family fun returns to Bournemouth this Christmas with the magical Pavilion Theatre pantomime, Aladdin.

The show runs from Saturday 10 December until Sunday 8 January and is once again written and directed by the face of BBC children's channel Cbeebies, Chris Jarvis - who also plays Wishee Washee. Home and Away's Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) is the evil Abanazar, with local girl Maria Rice Mundy returning to the Pavilion to play the Slave of the Ring.

Other cast members include: Andrew Oldham as Widow Twankey, ventriloquist Naughty Nigel Harvey with Ben and Sox as the Chinese Policeforce, Sarah Louise Day as Princess and Sarah Jane Buckley as Aladdin. The fantastic dancers are all provided by the locally-based Stage Door School of Dancing.

Aladdin promises fun, magic, music and mayhem in a show that will delight both the young and the young at heart. After Cinderella, the pantomime is the second most popular in the country.

The story originates from the Tales of the Arabian Nights and in the pantomime version the story is set in China and tells the story of Aladdin, his magic ring and his adventure into the cave to retrieve a magic lamp for the dastardly Abanazar.

"Aladdin will be a real treat for all the family," said entertainment and events manager for the Pavilion Theatre, Chris Jenkins.

Aladdin follows the huge success of last year's Pavilion Theatre pantomime, Jack and the Beanstalk, which was also written, directed and starred in by Chris Jarvis.

Tickets are on sale now from the Ticket Hotline on 0870 111 3000.
