After their Beauty and the Beast at the Black-E last year, Drops of Light bring their pantomime to Liverpool’s newest venue, The Hope Street Theatre, this Christmas.

Aladdin will star local stage favourites Adam McCoy in the title role, Tori Hargreaves (Princess), Emma Bispham (Abanazer), Jamie Greer (Widow Twankey), Helen Carter (Genie) and Liam Dascombe (Wishee Washee).

The production is written by Jessica Lea whose writing credits include Eastenders, Tracy Beaker and Hollyoaks.

Aladdin will be directed by The Hope Street Theatre’s Artistic Director Sam Donovan, and choreographed by Rare Studio’s Lindsay Inglesby.
