X Factor Finalist Bupsi Brown joins the cast as the Genie in Aladdin this Christmas at Castleford Civic Centre.
X Factor Finalist Bupsi Brown joins cast of Aladdin as the Genie of the Lamp in this year’s GENIE-us pantomime adventure. The Yorkshire singer rose to fame back in 2015 when she became an overnight talking point after she climbed up on to Simon Cowell’s desk and sat on his lap during her first X Factor audition.
She then performed for Simon and Louis Tomlinson at ‘judges houses’, and was ultimately picked and then performed in Simon Cowell’s ‘Overs’ category in The X Factor’s live shows. Since then, she has released new music and performed both abroad and around the UK.
She joins previously announced Magician and Ventriloquist Lorenzo Zambrana as Aladdin, TV’s Jason Karl as Abanazar, Panto Legend Phil Hoyles as Widow Twankey, International Hypnotist Dave Rawson as the Emperor, and Chloe Fay as Princess Jasmine.
Aladdin tells the tale of the Twankey Family and their dream of a a better life filled with riches and adventure. When a mysterious Abanazar offers untold riches in return for helping him find a magic lamp, Aladdin can’t believe his luck! His head filled with dreams of money and marrying the beautiful Princess, Aladdin sets off on an adventure that will change his life, and fortunes, forever…
Fancy coming? Head over to the Castleford Panto Box Office to secure your seats for this year’s wish-filled family pantomime!
