HORSHAM: Panto’s back with a bang in Horsham

This year’s highly anticipated production of Aladdin opens on Friday 3 December and runs until 31 December. Heroes Aladdin and Princess Amirah will take the audience on a spectacular, action-packed adventure through mystical lands with gorgeous sets, amazing costumes and lots of favourite songs.

Local Horsham lad Toby Miles (Les Misérables & Mamma Mia!) plays Aladdin in this magical new adaptation by award-winning Director Zoë Waterman, who directs at The Capitol for the first time following critically acclaimed pantomimes at Theatr Clwyd.

The festive family favourite also stars Rosie Cava-Beale (The Bodyguard UK Tour) as Princess Amirah, Pantomime legend Dan Smith as Widow Twankey, Siobhan Athwal (Viva Forever) as Genie of the Ring, Emma Ralston (Wind in The Willows) as Frankie Twankey, Antony Reed (Kinky Boots and Charlie and The Chocolate Factory) as Sultan and the outstanding Cavin Cornwall (most recently seen at Sadlers Wells in Singin’ In The Rain) as Abanazar.

There’s a relaxed performance at 5pm on Tuesday 14 December and special performances for schools on Tuesday 7 and Wednesday 8 December

From the Producers of last year’s sold out childrens show, Santa’s New Sleigh there’s a brand new festive Play by Sam Dredge with music by Masashi Fujimoto in The Capitol’s Studio theatre from Thursday 16 December until Christmas Eve, with a relaxed performance on Saturday 18 December at 4.30pm.

It’s a heart-warming festive story that includes exciting audience participation, original songs and Christmas classics, real magic and a present for every child to take home. With a running time of 50 minutes, it’s the perfect introduction to live theatre for little ones aged 3+.

Family tickets are available for both Christmas shows which provide a saving on standard ticket prices.
