The show stars Yeukayi Ushe as Genie and Gavin Adams as Aladdin, in his first professional role.

Billed as a “thrilling production filled with unforgettable magic, comedy and breathtaking spectacle” has already been seen by more than 14 million people worldwide.

"I remember when I first watched Disney's animated feature of Aladdin as a child,” said Yeukayi, “singing along to those timeless songs and watching in awe at the comedic stylings of Robin Williams.”

Gavin added: “I am delighted to be making my theatrical debut in such an iconic role, a real diamond in the rough whose aspirations and heart make him a true loveable hero.”
