Cannon and Ball in city’s Christmas panto

This year’s pantomime at Lincoln Theatre Royal, Aladdin, promises to be as entertaining as ever, starring returning comedy duo Cannon and Ball.

The Christmas panto, starting December 16, will have the typical goodies and baddies, “He’s behind you!” antics, fun music and spectacular costumes.

Pantomime baddie Robin Askwith, The Royal’s Michelle Hardwick, and Rob McVeigh from Any Dream Will Do, will join Cannon and Ball on stage for the play.

Aladdin is the story of a young man who discovers a magic lamp. Inside is a genie, who will grant him three wishes.

One of Aladdin’s wishes is to become a prince, so he can marry Princess Jasmine. However, the evil Jafar will stop at nothing to get in Aladdin’s way.

Despite the show not ending until January 16, 2011, Lincoln Theatre Royal advise anyone who is wanting to watch this year’s pantomime should book their tickets now, as spaces are selling out fast.

Tickets start at £12.50, with school and group discounts available. Tickets can be bought from the Theatre Royal Box Office, or by visiting the website.
