A NIGHT of panto fun awaits families as part of a South Tyneside community centre’s festive celebrations.

Chuter Ede Community Centre is once again opening its doors to one of the season’s favourite traditions – pantomime.

This year, families will be entertained with the story of Aladdin and the Meanie Genie, by Act One Productions.

Will Aladdin enter The Cave of Dreams egged on by the evil Abanazar to fetch the magic lamp? And is Meanie Genie finally going to demand better housing conditions?

Centre manager Jason Meiers said: “We have held pantomimes at Chuter Ede for a number of years now and everyone of them has been a sell-out.

“They are really popular with families and everyone always has a great time.

“It’s great to see so many of the community coming together with their children to celebrate what is a tradition at Christmas.

“The show caters for people of all ages – so there is something for everyone.”

The pantomime is made possible through fundraising events held throughout the year at the centre, including monthly table-top sales.

A limited number of tickets are available for the pantomime, taking place on Sunday, priced £3.

Doors will open at 6.45pm.
