Ready to make your wishes come true, Guildford’s Yvonne Arnaud Theatre is thrilled that stellar actress Susie Blake is starring as the Genie, leading a truly fabulous cast in this year’s magical family pantomime.
Susie Blake’s extensive theatre credits include starring as Madame Morrible in the West End smash-hit musical Wicked. Susie last appeared here in our production of When We Are Married which transferred directly into the West End’s Garrick Theatre. Television credits include Coronation Street, Victoria Wood as seen on TV, Wild at Heart and the Sky1 family sitcom Parents.
One of the country’s top cabaret performers, the inimitable Kit Hesketh-Harvey plays Abanazar. Eagle Radio’s Peter Gordon is The Emperor of China and Guildford favourite Royce Mills is equipped with a brand new wardrobe of outrageous frocks as he presents Widow Twankey.
After her captivating performance as Jack last year, Emma Thornett returns to the title role of Aladdin. Full of energy, Joe Allen joins the team as the lovable Wishee Washee while PC Pongo and Princess Jasmine will be played by Guildford School of Acting graduates Jamie Brook and Lucy Hope-Borne.
