The annual panto runs from December 1, 2017, to January 7, 2018.

He makes a welcome return to The Plaza and is guaranteed to bring the house down when he stars as  Widow Twanky the colourful Dame who explodes onto the stage to keep an eye on his/her errant children Aladdin, who will be played by newcomer to the Plaza pantomimes, Benjamin Connor, and Wishee Washee, played by the ever-popular Bradley Thompson.

Sarring alongside Robbins, Capron plays Abanazar. He has had roles in the West End in productions such as Guys And Dolls and The Rocky Horror Show and is well known for his many television roles, including his award-winning performance as the murderous Richard Hillman in Coronation Street.
