A FANTASTIC prize has flown in to the County Press by magic carpet — and one winner will be transported to see Aladdin in panto at Shanklin Theatre.

Spotlight has teamed up with the County Press to provide one winner with a VIP package this Christmas.

The prize includes a VIP trip to the pantomime, including four tickets to a performance of your choice, a backstage tour to see the theatre and meet the cast, complimentary ice creams and a free programme.

A Spotlight spokesperson said: "If you could have three wishes this Christmas what might they be?

"A wonderful time spent with your family? An unforgettable theatrical experience full of laughter singing, dancing and magic? Or watching two grown men falling over in slush, potentially risking their lives for a cheap laugh?

"Well your wish is our command and you don’t have to rub a magic lamp. Just come along to Aladdin."

The show will star Charles Johnson as Abanazer, Nicholas Devlin as Aladdin and Katherine Rashley as Princess Jasmine.

Also in the show will be the fabulous panto characters of Widow Twanky, Wishy Washy and, of course, the Genie.

Expect entertainment for the whole family in a fast-paced, hilarious show full of current songs, audience participation, special effects and surprises.

Aladdin runs from December 22 to January 2, at 2.45pm with evening performances on December 27, 28 and 30.

On December 29, there will be a special 'relaxed' show, aimed at families with children with an autistic spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders, a learning disability, or for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.

Additionally, the relaxed performance will be signed using British Sign Language, and ticket prices are reduced.
