Rotherham panto fans can get a sneak preview of one of this year’s stars on the evening of Tuesday 27th May, when Ricky K performs in the live semi-final of Britain’s Got Talent!

Ricky K - Aladdin

ALADDIN – starring comedian Ricky K – Semi-Finalist on Britain’s Got Talent

After watching the magnificent Rotherham United Football Club promotion parade in Rotherham town centre, the good news is set to continue, when the star of Rotherham’s 2014 Pantomime Aladdin, hilarious comedian Ricky K battles it out for a place in the final of Britain’s Got Talent.

Ricky wowed Simon Cowell with his visual comedy routines in his Britain’s Got Talent audition – which made Simon “Laugh out loud”.

The first stars have been announced for this year’s magical pantomime Aladdin: Ricky K (who will star in the title role as “Aladdin”) will be joined by last year’s side-splittingly funny panto dame from Beauty and The Beast, “Dame Dolly”, played by Rotherham’s favourite panto dame Mark Hudson, who returns by popular demand as “Widow Twankey”. More stars for this year’s pantomime will be revealed soon.

Shone Productions are delighted to be flying into Rotherham Civic Theatre with the magical pantomime adventure, Aladdin. Join us for a beloved tale filled with love, comedy, laughter, music and lots of sparkle!

Come and cheer on Widow Twankey and her son Aladdin, as he tries to win the heart of the beautiful princess Jasmine. Be mesmerised as they do battle with the evil magician Abanazer, who aims to be the master of the world. It seems Aladdin’s wishes may never come true, but maybe with a little help from the Genie of the Lamp and the Slave of the Ring we’ll reach an ending of happy ever after!

There is only one way to find out – come and see this spectacular production featuring the comical Ricky K, Mark Hudson and our talented professional cast with beautiful scenery, stunning costumes, dazzling song and dance routines, and hilarious jokes plus lots of audience participation accompanied by a fantastic live band.
