Lifting off from Sheffield’s Lyceum this Christmas will be Prince Ali and now, after an extremely successful audition, nine Berry Babes will be joining him on his magic carpet.
Aladdin is this year’s Christmas pantomime, co-produced by Evolution Pantomimes and Sheffield Theatres. It will run from December 2014 – January 2016. With the most of the star cast yet to be announced, we do know that Sheffield’s favourite dame, Damian Williams, will be returning to play Aladdin’s mum, Widow Twankey.
A day of auditions saw over 260 hopefuls dance their hearts out in order to join the children’s chorus. We are so proud of all our pupils who auditioned and did their best, and would like to congratulate Eva Cadet, Maddie Dunn, Maisie Ganley, Lucy Holcroft, Eleanor Jackson, Megan Moore, Megan Thorpe, Renee Warren and Aliyah Xaba who will be treading the boards of the Lyceum this Christmas.
Well done to all who auditioned and we can’t wait to watch our Berry Babes in December!
