KEVIN JOHNS RETURNS IN HIS 19TH CONSECUTIVE SWANSEA GRAND PANTOMIME, ALADDIN
Swansea Grand Theatre has announced that much-loved Grand Dame of pantomime Kevin Johns MBE will be starring in this year’s wish-filled family production of Aladdin from the 15 December 2017.
One of Wales’ most prolific performers, Kevin’s career has spanned musical theatre, stand-up comedy, presenting and pantomime, with this year’s appearance as Widow Twankey marking his 19th consecutive year at the Singleton Street venue, having entertained thousands of audience members every Christmas with his trademark comedy, outrageous costumes and quick wit.
From Shakespeare to Songs of Praise, Kevin has appeared in numerous theatrical productions, television programmes and radio shows as well as being a newspaper columnist, author, fundraiser and recipient of the MBE from Her Majesty the Queen.
Kevin Johns said: “I can’t quite believe Aladdin will be my 19th Grand pantomime, but I’m delighted to have been asked back yet again. The Grand audiences are amongst the best in the world and it’s a real honour to entertain so many families and friends every Christmas. We’re already busy thinking of new ideas and routines to wow the crowds, and I can’t wait for the magic to start.”
Swansea Grand Theatre Manager, Paul Hopkins stated, “We are thrilled to welcome Kev back for this year’s pantomime and are looking forward to another show stopping pantomime at Swansea Grand Theatre”
Produced once again by Qdos Entertainment, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, audiences will follow Aladdin, his hapless brother Wishee Washee and, of course, his mother Widow Twankey, on a spectacular adventure featuring a wish-granting genie, an evil sorcerer and a lamp-full of laughs.
With further star casting to be announced, audiences should make tickets to Aladdin one of their three wishes this festive season by hopping abroad a magic carpet and flying to the Box Office today!
I am delighted to now be represented by The Mark Jermin Agency with offices in Wales and London.
I have known Mark for a number of years and have worked with him and his team on many events and fundraisers.
I am very excited about the future and am really looking forward to be working with Mark and Charlotte.

I’m also looking forward to working with the very talented Welsh stage director Peter Richards for a production of one of Shakespeare's funniest comedies Two Gentlemen of Verona.
I have long wanted to play Launce,who is undoubtedly one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedy characters.

2014 marks the centenary celebrations of the birth of Swansea's own Dylan Thomas. Kev will be appearing with The Lighthouse Theatre Company in a promenade performance of Dylan's Return Journey - a challenge; but an exciting one.
Starting in Castle Square and finishing in Cwmdonkin Park, it recreates the text and journey taken by Dylan on his ‘Return Journey’ to Swansea after the Three Nights’ Blitz in February 1941, and where he remained for the rest of the war. It was first broadcast in 1947.
Kev has just played the role of Nigel in the teaser trailer for S-COPS for Panik Attack Productions
Kev has also been filming a number of scenes and interviews for 'Jack to a King' the film that tells the story of the Swans' triumphant rise to the Premier League.
Co-produced by Mal Pope the film is directed by BAFTA award-winning director Marc Evans, who says: “This is not just a film about the rise of Swansea City Football Club, but the story of a town and the people who made the club what it is today.”
Kev Johns invites young people to study in Swansea after being made an Honorary Fellow of The University of Wales Trinity St David's and the Graduation Ceremony of Swansea Metropolitan University
