MAGICAL pantomime Aladdin will be flying into Redditch Palace Theatre later this year.
Robin Windsor, best known for his stunning performances in Strictly Come Dancing, is returning for his second panto in two years.
Playing the well-received character, the Genie, Robin plans to put in the performance of a lifetime in what could be his last-ever panto in the UK.
He said: “I am so excited to be playing Genie in Aladdin.
“He’s known for his magic and flamboyant costumes which suits my own personality perfectly.
“I played the Genie last year and I loved every second of it, I can’t wait to bring this character to life again.”
Robin will be joined by the hugely successful Musical Theatre star, Michael Auger, who is playing the role of Aladdin.
Michael won Britain’s Got Talent in 2014 as a member of the band Collabro and following immediate praise, which included a standing ovation, impressed Simon Cowell and the rest of the judges.
To complete the line-up – Darren Clewlow-Smith will play Abanazar, Louise Cannon will take on the iconic role of Princess Jasmine and Hattie Parker plays the Spirit of the Ring.
Returning to the Palace Theatre is Simon Howe, as comical Widow Twankey, and Jordan Newman and Samuel Quick who play the Poilcemen.
A spokesperson for Redditch Palace Theatre said: “With this brilliant line-up, lavish scenery and costumes, good old fashioned slapstick, memorable music and modern choreography, this production will have something for all ages.”
Rehearsals will begin in November and the show is expected to run from December 10 to January 6 2019.
