Lots of laughs as Bradford Alhambra panto rehearsals start

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Billy Pearce in rehearsal Billy Pearce in rehearsal

Funnyman Billy Pearce and pop star Chico have been getting to know fellow cast members as they rehearse for this year’s Alhambra pantomime, Aladdin.

“It’s going really well, we’re having a fabulous time. I haven’t laughed so much for ages,” said Chico, who shot to fame on X Factor and has since appeared in pantomimes and musical theatre productions.

He added: “This panto is like a West End production. It’s a combination of old-school humour and incredible special effects. Bradford is going to love it!” As revealed by the T&A, the show will see Billy Pearce flying over the audience on a magic carpet. “It actually turns upside-down at one point, I hope they harness me in!” said Billy. Aladdin runs from December 14 to January 26, 2014. Tickets are available on (01274) 432000.
