According to the panto's official website, the show features "genies by the lamp-load, belly-busting comedy, chart-topping songs, bags of family fun, audience participation, pantoland's biggest, boo-able baddie and, just maybe, a real flying carpet."

Sounds great!

Funnily enough, Jasmin previously dressed as Princess Jasmine to attend a preview of another Aladdin panto, this time in 2013 at London's New Wimbledon Theatre.

Fate calling?!

The genie will be played by former EastEnders star Michelle Collins, who told the Bucks Herald: "I love panto, and Aladdin has to be one of my absolute favourites! It's the very best festive tradition where all of the family can come together and enjoy some good old fashioned fun, and I hear that the audiences in Aylesbury really go all out to join in the silliness, so I'm really looking forwward to spending time with you this Christmas."
