I’m back to Basildon for panto this year working with SIMON FIELDING on Aladdin. Last year’s Sleeping Beauty won two awards at the Great British Pantomime Awards – ‘Best Choreography’ and ‘Panto of the year 2016’.
Directed by David Samuel, this is a spectacular and slick production in every way, with diverse music directed by Matthew Reeve, superb costumes, and a myriad of stunning stage sets.

Successful panto needs something for all ages to connect to and Director David Samuel ensures that there’s something for all the family and in an age where many pantomimes are moving to pre-recorded musical backing tracks it’s a pleasure to hear a score played live under Matthew Reeve’s musical direction.

Music is provided by a two-man “orchestra”, Matthew Reeve and Andy Burt, creating a much more impressive sound than their numbers would suggest.
