THE stars of Middlesbrough Theatre's pantomime brought some festive magic to shoppers at the weekend.

Aladdin and the rest of the cast were at Morrisons on Teesside Retail Park from 10am to encourage people to come to see their show.

Included in the cast is actor Mike Burns, better known as Colin in BBC's The Brittas Empire, who is donning a frock to play Widow Twanky.

Morrisons are providing goodie-bags to the pantomime which will be handed out to children on stage. They contain sweets, drinks and colouring books.
