Blue Peter legend conjures up Everyman panto

Where: Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

When: Friday, November 30, to Sunday, January 13

Is it too soon to mention Christmas? Oh no it isn't!

The highlight of the Christmas season in Gloucestershire is the annual pantomime - and this year the Everyman Theatre is going ever bigger and better than ever in a brand-new production of Aladdin written and directed by Blue Peter legend Peter Duncan.

Tweedy the clown, playing Wishee Washee, returns for more comic genie-ous in the most magical pantomime of them all, while Daniel Beales plays Widow Twankey and Ben Darcy is Aladdin.

So now is your chance to polish your magic lamp and book a magic carpet ride to the Everyman Theatre for the most magical show of the year.

Mark Goucher, chief executive of the Everyman, said: "We all look forward to a pantomime at Christmas and this year we really have pulled out all the stops!

"We have a whole new cast and, of course, Tweedy the clown will be leading the mayhem. We broke all previous records last year and have already sold more than 20,000 tickets this year so book soon so you don't miss out on the fun!"
