Aladdin - Principal boy, strong singing, dancing and acting skills required.
Widow Twankey - classic Panto dame character, good comedy skills and ability to talk to the audience (and think on your feet!) She runs the local launderette and is mother of Aladdin and Wishee Washee.

Wishee Washee - An audience favourite and brother to Aladdin. High energy character who needs to build a good rapport with the audience.
