Aladdin is on at Spotlight Theatre, Bridlington

Many would presume panto season is only around the months of December and January but parents looking to entertain their children during the summer holidays should get down to Spotlight in Bridlington.

It is hosting a first-class production was delivered by the four main performers, Widow Twanky, Aladdin, the evil Abanazar and Wishy Washy, and kept the girls, aged five, eight and 12, amused throughout.

The star of the show was Wishy Washy, played by the Dale Ibbetson, whose high-energy performance made the audience chuckle, leaving the boos and hisses to be directed at Glynn Mills’ dastardly Abanazar for his evil scheming and wicked plots.

The excellent, traditional ghost routine was one of the high points, with plenty of audience participation in, and at many points throughout the performance, Ibbetson getting the audience, young and old, involved in the musical numbers.
