We’re at the launch of Aladdin at Royal
and Derngate this Christmas. It’s been great so far. We’ve just come back from
the shopping centre, where Jaymi Hensley was singing his heart out!
– My name is Jaymi Hensley you may recognise me from the X-Factor boyband Union J.
I am playing Aladdin this year which I’m very excited about, most excited to fly the magic carpet!
– It’s a great company of great vocalists which is amazing. Sheila
Ferguson is a legend, we’ve all been brought up with The Three Degrees and all their great songs.
– The best panto you’re gonna see this year has got to be
Aladdin because we’re in it! And there’s gonna be a wonderful, wonderful feel-good
factor and vibes and songs and singing and acting and laughs, bundles and bundles of laughs!
– I’m Paul Nicholas, I’m playing Abanazar who’s the villain here in Aladdin *evil laugh*.
– It’s got everything this story: music, laughter, great scenery, sets
costumes, lots of magical effects flying carpets over the audience…
– So guys this year you have to, have to come and see Aladdin here in Northampton it’s gonna
be massive, spectacular, we’ve got some awesome special effects, we’ve got a huge real life-size genie I mean, what else do you need? Make sure
you come and see us at Royal & Derngate this December.
