THE Chuckle Brothers returned to a North-East town yesterday (Tuesday) for the launch of this year’s annual Christmas pantomime.
Qdos Entertainment, the world’s largest pantomime producer, will be presenting Aladdin at the Darlington Civic Theatre this winter.
It will star the Chuckle Brothers as Wishee and Washee, Philip Meeks as the Widow Twankey, Phil Corbitt as Abanazar and Darlington’s own Beth Stobbart as the Princess.
Organisers are promising a show complete with comedy, costumes and sets guaranteeing an entertaining night for the whole family.
A launch afternoon was held at the Civic Theatre yesterday (Tuesday) to display this collection of talent. This came complete with cast interviews of the lead characters, as well as photographs.
Miss Stobbart’s has been a member of the Darlington Operatic Society since 2010, playing parts such as Maria in their production of The Sound of Music.
She was encouraged to audition for the panto part by fellow members.
The pantomime will hit the stage from December 7 and runs until January 12.
Tickets are priced from £16 to £23.50, with family tickets, schools and groups discounts offered. To book, call 01325-486555.
