Television and stage star Louie Spence will lead the cast of this year’s spectacular family pantomime Aladdin at Darlington Hippodrome, alongside last year’s returning stars Eric Potts and Liam Mellor from Saturday 8 December.

In addition to his television experience Louie has enjoyed an extensive stage career appearing in Miss Saigon and Cats and danced alongside Take That and the Spice Girls. Louie will play the Genie of the Ring in Aladdin, his ninth foray into pantomime, bringing with him the high kicks and high jinks he’s best known for.

Returning for another year as Darlington’s ultimate Dame, Eric Potts will star as Widow Twankey, Old Peking’s ultimate laundry lady and will again direct this year’s production.

Also back for more will be Liam Mellor, who stars alongside Louie and Eric as Wishee Washee, the hapless but hilarious brother to the high-flying hero Aladdin.

Aladdin will be produced by Qdos Entertainment, the team behind Darlington’s annual pantomime, who guarantee another production packed with audience participation, sensational music and dancing, special effects and fantastic festive entertainment suitable for all ages.
