Lyric panto veteran Vikki Stone returns as writer of this year’s festive blowout
The impressively multi-talented Vikki Stone is already a musical theatre actor, songwriter, comedian, and panto villain par excellence. She unleashed a memorable performance as Abanazer in the Lyric Hammersmith's 2016 'Aladdin'; now, she's returning to the magic carpet-flying fairytale, this time as author. The Lyric panto is typically one of London's edgiest and best; this year's offering will feature a live band, plenty of gags, and traditional audience participation galore.
Delayed by a year following You Know What, it finally – touch wood – hits the Lyric stage in 2021. It stars Qasim Mahmood as Aladdin, Stephan Boyce as Dave Twankey, Kate Donnachie as Emperor/Genie, Irvine Iqbal as Abanazer, Gracie McGonigal as Wishy and Ellena Vincent as Jasmine. Abigail Graham directs.
