About the Show
Far from the Disney story or stage musical world of the Middle East, this English pantomime story of Aladdin takes place in the Far East with a number of oriental references.
Rather than an orphan living on the streets, Aladdin lives at a laundry with his brother and mother.
When he spies Princess Jasmin in the street one day he falls in love and becomes determined to marry her.
Along the way he gets caught up in the villainous Abanazar’s plans to retrieve a wondrous lamp.
In the traditional pantomime style, this story contains modern songs and references, a whole lot of slapstick comedy, magic and pantomime nonsense!
