“It’s great to back out there doing what we love; putting on entertaining shows with first class cast members in fabulous venues. We want to make the public relax and smile, especially after what we have all been through in the past year.”

Aladdin and His Magic Ring tells the story of a young, audacious man who needs to find his princess. If he doesn’t he could explode… quite literally.

Lee said audiences can expect the script to be “raunchy, rude and X-rated”.

Television presenter Kim Woodburn, of Channel 4’s How Clean Is Your House? said: “I have thoroughly missed being able to perform on stage and when Lee approached me with this script, within the first few minutes of reading I just knew I had to be involved.

You know I don’t mind getting my hands dirty and with this one I may just have to.”
