Panto was launched at Derby Arena

Derby LIVE pantomime launch at Derby Arena

Mon 17 Aug 2015

The stars of our Christmas Panto – Aladdin met up for the first time yesterday for the Panto launch in Derby. The cast, including real-life couple - Ritchie Neville and Natasha Hamilton will join Dan Osborne, Leon Craig and Mike McClean in the annual Christmas event. All the cast members were wearing the costumes that they will perform in later in the year.

This year’s Panto, will be the first panto to take place at Derby Arena, so naturally the photocall took place outside the Arena itself, where a giant lamp prop took centre stage! On arrival back at the Guildhall Theatre, the cast were interviewed by some local reporters before enjoying a lunch from Nandos! 

In the afternoon, each of the cast members took to the stage to film the panto trailer - a little something special to help give you an idea of what the panto will have in store! We'll be releasing this on social media over the coming months.

It's all starting to get a little bit more real and we can't wait to bring it to you this Christmas, so make sure you get your tickets now as they are selling fast!
