The King of Bradford Pantomime, Billy Pearce, is back for his 20th Bradford panto in 2018! This year, he’s playing Wishee Washee in Aladdin.
It’s not really my favourite panto, but Billy Pearce is certainly my favourite panto cast member of all time. You can trust the Bradford Alhambra productions to be full of wit, comedy, charm and extravagance and I really can’t wait!
Billy Pearce is a successful stand up comedian as well as actor, but he truly shines during panto season (which I, for one, think should be an all year round kind of occasion!)
Michael Harrison, Managing Director of Qdos Entertainment, producer of the annual Alhambra Theatre pantomime says: “It’s fantastic to have Billy back in Bradford once again. Audiences absolutely adore him and we are delighted to be celebrating his 20th pantomime appearance this year. We’re already hard at work planning all sorts of magical surprises and hilarious routines for him to entertain audiences with, and they won’t be disappointed.”
The rest of the ‘star casting’ is soon to be announced… I’m hoping the Genie grants my wish of Julian Clary but I don’t think Bradford’ll have the budget for quite such a comic genie-us. Might just have to settle for one of the Nolan sisters again.
