Former Coronation Street actor Terence Maynard is the star of Aladdin at Hartlepool Town Hall Theatre this Christmas.
Terence - Tony Stewart in the ITV soap until he left last year - is playing the role of the wicked wizard Abanazar.
Hartlepool Council has joined forces with Elite Pantomimes to stage the show.
The pantomime tells the story of Aladdin as he tries to make his fortune while dreaming about marrying the gorgeous Princess Jasmine. However, all the while evil Abanazar lurks in the shadows intent on ruining everything.
This brand new production features all the fun and laughs of a traditional, family pantomime – a flying carpet, a mysterious genie and a good old-fashioned song sheet – backed by a live band.
