Lamp conjures up panto interest
Published 23/12/13



A huge Aladdin’s lamp was in Henley Market Place on Saturday to conjure up interest in this year’s pantomime.

The lamp, an unused prop for the production of Aladdin, was placed outside Starbucks in the square as the stars of the show handed out flyers.

Alice Pitt-Carter, playing the princess, and James Gwynne, who plays PC Pong, also took pictures with passers-by and posed with jewels.

The pantomime opened at the Kenton Theatre in New Street yesterday (Thursday) and will be performed daily until December 28.

James Clifford stars as Aladdin in the production, which has already sold more than 3,000 tickets. Demand is so high that an extra performance has been added.


Wendy Bowsher, managing director of the theatre, said: “Today is about trying to sell tickets and get as many kids as possible to the pantomime this Christmas.

“The lamp has been all around town to schools and we are also hoping to get a picture of our PC Pong with a local policeman.

“Interest in the pantomime has been really good so far and we have even added an extra performance due to demand.”

The show will be directed by Heather Simpkin with music from James Church.
