New Wimbledon Theatre and First Family Entertainment are thrilled to announce the biggest line-up in pantomime history for this year's Christmas spectacular Aladdin at New Wimbledon Theatre, London.
Best known for her role as CJ Parker in 'Baywatch', and one of the most photographed women in the world, Pamela Anderson will be playing the role of the Genie of the Lamp for two weeks only. Bringing a whole new take on the same role will be comedian and chat show host king Paul O'Grady who will be playing the role in the New Year, in a triumphant return to Pantoland having not appeared in one since 2005.
In a change to usual tradition, and in what New Wimbledon Theatre believes to be a first in Pantomime history, the role of the Genie of the Lamp will be played by four celebrity guest stars. They will be supported by a core cast which is headed by renowned actor, author and adventurer Brian Blessed who will be doing all he can to stop their magical intentions by playing the evil Abanazar - the ultimate villain determined to outsmart our hero.
Pamela Anderson will be appearing onstage as the Genie of the Lamp from Sunday 13 until Sunday 27 December. Paul O'Grady will assume the role for the final week, from Tuesday 5 until Sunday 10 January 2010. Further casting announcements will be made soon.
