Anderson and O’Grady to star in Aladdin at New Wimbledon Theatre
Pamela Anderson and Paul O’Grady are to star in a pantomime production of Aladdin at the New Wimbledon Theatre.
Best known for playing CJ Parker in Baywatch, Anderson will be playing the role of the Genie in the Lamp for two weeks only, before Christmas. She will be replaced by O’Grady in the new year.
O’Grady said: “I am really excited to be back in panto this year having not done one for some time. This is also the first time I’ll be playing a goodie as I’ve been the villain in most of my other stage roles.
“Having made a living frightening children it’s probably time I aired my softer side. If I can find one in time.”
The pantomime is produced by First Family Entertainment, and sponsored by Robinsons. The show will run from December 4 until January 10.
