Aladdin opens tomorrow (Friday) atthe Corn Exchange

and it promises to be an action-packed spectacle, full of mischief and mayhem. Written and directed by the award-winning Phil Whilmott , you can expect to laugh, cheer and boo along in this year’s adventure.
The auditorium has been decorated, the stage painted and hundreds of cups of tea drunk in the weeks running up to opening night this Friday in order to transform the town centre venue in the magical land of Old Peeking. Some of this year's new faces are Christian James (Aladdin), Caoimhe Garvey (Princess Jasmine), Anne Odeke (Gloria the Genie of the Lamp), Joshua Coley (Policeman Pong), Dominic Griffen (Wishee Washee), Christopher Hines (Abanazar) and Phil Sealey (Widow Twankey). Newbury pantomime favourite Matthew Grace returns as Billy the Genie of the Ring, and Amy Murray, who played Buttons in

in 2012, will be in the role of Policeman Ping. Dazzling new costumes will once again be designed by James Maciver. The annual pantomime at the Corn Exchange is often described as the must-see Christmas event in Newbury. Last year they enjoyed record-breaking houses, with over 22,000 people coming through the doors to enjoy the festive fun. Uplifting songs, high energy dance routines, comic thrills and outrageous silliness... book your tickets and give your Christmas some razzle dazzle. Tickets start from £15 - £20 , with concessions and groups tickets available on certain performances.
