the shows are fam­ily friendly. His ap­proach en­sures that ev­ery mem­ber of the fam­ily leaves the the­atre smil­ing.

Peo­ple come back year after year, show­ing he un­der­stands his au­di­ence.

This year’s pro­duc­tion, Aladdin, has all the in­gre­di­ents for a great show: au­di­ence par­tic­i­pa­tion, a panda, a dragon, magic, cus­tard pies – it’s all there.

“We are al­ready 16 per cent up on last year,” said Mark, “and we are head­ing for a sell­out run.

“It’s shap­ing up to be a ter­rific show. With two re­hearsals left to tech week, we are in the home straight, and the cast and crew are pulling out all the stops.”

Tick­ets can be or­dered on­line through the groups web­site, www. youngth­e­atre.org.uk. Tick­ets start at £8. REGINALD D Hunter is on tour again in the UK next year with a stop off in Wy­combe.

Reginald has been in the UK for just un­der two decades and in that time he has be­come one of the UK com­edy in­dus­try’s best-known per­form­ers for his dis­tinc­tive take on sub­jects in­clud­ing race and sex­u­al­ity.

Now he will per­form his stand-up at the Wy­combe Swan on Tues­day, May 26.

His work can be bru­tally hon­est and is of­ten con­sid­ered to be con­tro­ver­sial but it is al­ways metic­u­lously thought out and he has never been afraid to face chal­leng­ing is­sues head on, even when the fo­cus is on his own prin­ci­ples or be­liefs.

He is a well-known face on prime­time tele­vi­sion shows such as 8 Out Of 10 Cats, Never Mind The Buz­zcocks and QI and is a fre­quent guest on Have I Got News For You.

He has ap­peared in Ar­gu­men­tal for Dave Chan­nel and Would I Lie To You and Live At The Apollo for BBC1 and starred along­side Andy Hamil­ton in BBC4’s It’s Only A The­ory.
