PREVIEW: Aladdin starring La Voix at Shaw Theatre

Besi Besemar November 11, 2014

Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist La Voix will star as Widow Twankey alongside Ben Richards as Abanazar in Aladdin at the Shaw Theatre in London.

Aladdin with La Voix

ALADDIN is one of the only traditional pantomimes playing in central London this year and will feature a live band, stunning sets, glittering costumes, and plenty of audience participation.

La Voix whose accolades include Best Drag Act at this year’s London Cabaret Awards is a vivacious performer with live spine tingling vocals and an uncanny ability to switch between the vocal styles of Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland or Cher with the click of a finger.

Ben Richards starred in the UK Tour of Rock of Ages, with other recent theatre including leading roles in Oliver! at Sheffield Crucible, the UK Tour of 9 to 5, Priscilla Queen of the Desert at The Palace Theatre, Guys And Dolls at the Piccadilly Theatre, Grease at the Victoria Palace Theatre and Saturday Night Fever at the London Palladium. Ben is well known for TV roles including PC Nate Roberts in The Bill, Justin in Holby City and Bruno Milligan in Footballers’ Wives.

The cast also features Justin Thomas (Wicked, Dirty Dancing) as Aladdin, Helen Kurup (CBBC’s I Dream) as Princess Jasmine, Matthew Wesley (From Here to Eternity, Cabaret) as Genie of the Lamp, Lauren Storer as Genie of the Ring, Paul Lawrence Thomas as Wishee Washee, Oliver Broad as PC Pongo and Mark Lyminster as Emperor of China.
