Aladdin - A Holiday Pantomime
This version of Aladdin - is the typical British pantomime but told from a modern-day perspective.

The script loosely follows the Aladdin story but is set in the present time and has a twist. It will involve plenty of jokes, lots of loud colourful characters and fun for everyone! There may even be a performance from a local celebrity!
