Get first glimpse at panto with preview show of Aladdin


Tickets are on sale for the preview performance of this year’s pantomime at the Princes Theatre.

The cast of Aladdin first take to the stage this season on Friday, 8 December – and tickets cost just £11 per person for the preview of the pantomime, staged by Anton Benson Productions.

Taking place before the official opening of the show at the Princes Theatre – run by Tendring District Council (TDC) – the preview is the first chance the stars get to run the performance before a live audience.

Mick Barry, TDC Cabinet Member for Leisure and Public Realm, said the preview was a fun show to watch.

“Although the cast put hours of effort into rehearsals, there’s nothing like that first show with an audience to gauge how the whole thing comes together,” Councillor Barry said.

“So not only do you get to be the first to see Aladdin, but you might also witness some real gems never to be seen again.

“At just £11 per ticket the preview is great value for money – so why not book now to enjoy this unique offer?”

Aladdin features a stellar cast including former Eastenders star ‘Nasty Nick’ John Altman, pop sensation Cleopatra Higgins, and Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist Graeme Matthews as Wishee Washee.

Tickets are available from the Princes Theatre website at or by calling the Box Office on 01255 686633 (Option 1).
