10 MAY 2010: Aladdin Press Launch
John Barrowman has returned to his native Glasgow to officially launch this year’s spectacular pantomime, Aladdin, at the SECC. Speaking at a sneak preview of the 3D special effects to be used in the pantomime, attended by an invited audience that included children from his old school, Mount Vernon Primary, John said: “I’m delighted to be bringing this fantastic and unmissable production of Aladdin to my home city and to the Clyde Auditorium. I’m also thrilled to be working with two of Glasgow’s great pantomime exponents, The Krankies, who play The Chinese Policemen. Aladdin is packed with comedy, spectacular sets, outrageous costumes and an array of 3D effects, so it’s a hugely entertaining show for all the family.”
Michael Harrison, Managing Director of Qdos Entertainment’s Pantomime Division and Executive Producer of Aladdin, said: “Audiences will love the visual effects as the 3D Genie and other aspects of the show come magically to life! We are delighted that John will be joined by Glasgow panto favourites, The Krankies, in a production which adds a new dimension to the City’s tradition of great pantomime.”

Staged by Qdos Entertainment, the world’s largest pantomime producer, Aladdin went on sale last December - one full year before its opening night. Wearing 3D glasses at certain points throughout the panto the audience can rub the magic lamp as it appears in front of their nose, summon the magical 3D Genie from his lamp and join Aladdin on a superb 3D magic carpet ride!
John Sharkey, Chief Executive, SECC added: "We are looking forward to welcoming John, The Krankies and Qdos Entertainment to the SECC this festive season. To be staging a production of such high calibre further highlights our position and reputation as a world-class venue for family entertainment.”
Aladdin runs at the SECC’s Clyde Auditorium from Saturday 11 December 2010 to Sunday 9 January 2011.
