Former EastEnders and Extras star Shaun Williamson plays the evil Abanazar in the production which opens on Friday, December 14.

Brought to the stage by the same production team behind last year’s record-breaking panto Snow White, the fun-packed family show also features children’s favourite Phil Gallagher – CBeebies’ Mister Maker – as Aladdin.

Also returning to the Arena is St Albans’ favourite funnyman Bob Golding as Pc Pongo, while Kelly Chinery and Jemma Carlisle add the glamour.

The panto runs until Sunday, January 6, 2013 and tickets are flying out of the box office quicker than Aladdin’s magic carpet.

Tickets for non-peak performances cost £16.50 and £14 concessions.

Prices for peak performances are £21.50 and £19.50, while concessions pay £19 and £17.

Family show tickets are £16.50.
