Worthing Theatres have confirmed Brighton cabaret artist Dave Lynn will be Widow Twankey in Aladdin at the Pavilion Theatre from Friday, November 30 to Tuesday, January 1.

Dave has become a frequent face on British TV screens with roles in some of the nation’s favourite dramas including EastEnders, Coronation Street and, most recently, a guest spot singing alongside Lesley Joseph in Birds of a Feather. Dave even stood up to Anne Robinson in a memorable episode of the TV quiz The Weakest Link.

He is perhaps best recognised for mentoring an unlikely naval officer to become a drag artist in just four weeks in the award-winning Channel 4 series Faking It and for his role in the film Beautiful Thing.

Pantomime producer Paul Holman said: “Dave is the perfect complement to our already wonderful Aladdin cast. With a warm heart and a twinkle in his eye, the audience will no doubt fall for the charms of Dave’s Widow Twankey.”
