Make your wishes come true for Christmas 2021 with our spellbinding production of Aladdin!
Can our hero find the magic lamp and marry the girl of his dreams – Princess Jasmine?
Or will Aladdin's plans be thwarted by the villainous Abanazar, who wants the lamp – and the princess – for himself?
Magic, mirth and mayhem abound in this timeless rags to riches tale, brought to you by the same team behind 2019's panto, Dick Whittington and 2020's Four Dames in Search of a Panto.
With original songs, a great cast and hilarious script, this family show will be pure Genie-us!
