Aladdin The Panto!

About the Play

Aladdin is one of the tales in The Book of One Thousand and One Nights (The Arabian Nights), and one of the best known stories, although it was actually added to the collection in the 18th century by Frenchman Antoine Galland. In the United Kingdom, the story of Aladdin was dramatized in 1788 by John O’Keefe for the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden. It has been a popular subject for pantomime for over 200 years.

Since the early 1990’s, Aladdin pantomimes have tended to be influenced by the Disney Movies. Disney Theatricals itself produced a Broadway-style musical in Seattle in 2011, and another musical originating in Toronto in 2013, which is going to Broadway in 2014.

In our version we follow the Aladdin story and give it the full panto treatment. You’ll see familiar faces, although not exactly as you may remember them… as well as a series of new characters, including Aladdin’s Mum and proprietor of the Agrabah Laundry.

Expect the unexpected in this uproariously funny take on the classic tale!
