Aladdin is never around when you need him, but he has managed to catch the eye of Princess Jasmine and is determined to become the hero that can marry her. Her parents, the Sultan and Sultana have other plans, and ask the fortune teller, Donna Kebab to help them find a husband for Jasmine. Meanwhile the sly Abanazar persuades Aladdin's mother, Widow Twankey, to let him take Aladdin to find a cave full of jewels, and make them all rich. What could possibly go wrong?

Abanazar, his Demons, and Oleg and his Oligarchs all make sure things go awry. The Grand Vizier, Wishy Washy and his Baby Panda, Buttercup the cow, Alley Barber (the reformed thief) and the two inept police officers are all of no help making everything right again. Thank goodness for the two genies, Genie and Jeanie, who have the power to ensure that absolutely everybody lives happily ever after.

An ideal pantomime for those winter months after Christmas, performances are Saturday 29th January and Saturday 5th February - choose a matinee at 2:30pm or an evening performance at 7:00pm. Tickets available here
