The panto opened on friday 10th December to a packed house and has been running a week now. Although numbers were down saturday and sunday night due to the XFactor finals, the panto is getting good support from the Kettering community.

Nikki is a good choice for Princess Balroubador, it was Princess Jasmine in the pre-show advertising, so I wonder why they changed it? Nikki sings "Somewhere out there" a duet with Aladdin played by Josh Dubovie, and the pairing of Nikki and Josh is very sweet. Nikki's performance is very good, with her actions, facial expressions and delivery is highly entertaining. She even gets in a couple of her famous catch phrases, I wont tell you what they are but watch more video's here and you will find out.

Nikki is just right for panto and has been exercising her vocal chords on her recent accoustic set tour where she sings Supergrass Songs. Her acting in this production just shows how versatile Nikki really is and Nikki never claims to be a singer but does remarkably well here. I am sure their will be more panto's to come for Nikki and perhaps more TV/Acting work.

The Production of Aladdin runs to December 26th and also includes panto veteran and Dr Who fame Frazer Hines as Wishee Washee, Singer and IAC survivor David Van Day as the evil Abanazar, a fantastic performance from Rodney Ward as Widow Twankey, XFactor Star Daniel Fox as Sergent Suey and Columnist Sue Moxley as the Genie. Read more here for dates, times and info about the panto. So why not come along to show your support for Nikki, its highly entertaing and only 1 hour train ride from London.
