We are delighted to have three local stars appearing in Aladdin this Christmas. Heartbeat's David Lonsdale will be playing Widow Twankey with Radio City's Claire Simmo as Spirit of the Ring and they are joined by Matt Crosby as the loveable Wishee Washee. Alongside these are Coronation Street star Scott Wright as the deliciously devilish Abanazar with Brookside's Ann Marie Davies as So Shi. Laura Robson returns for her second year in Southport to play the title role of Aladdin with Ashley Andrew as the Beautiful Princess Baldroubadour. Aaron Gibson completes the line up as the magical Genie of the Lamp.
