About the Show/Event
Information for Aladdin at New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich (Panto). The Pantomime story of Aladdin and the magic lamp. Widow Twankey's in a spin - there's the Emperor's robes to be cleaned, stir fry to be cooked and the mysterious magician, Abanazer, to be catered for. Then her eldest son Aladdin falls for Princess Lotus Blossom, the Emperor's daughter, and she nearly chokes on her chop suey. But when Aladdin and his pet monkey, Cuddles, get their hands on an ancient oil lamp, a rocking green Genie magically appears to make all their dreams come true. Can they outwit the evil Abanazer, dodge the Emperor's dragons, and prove that a Princess and a peasant can make the perfect pair? This ancient tale gets a brand new twist, incorporating over twenty classic songs including I'm A Believer, Papa Don't Preach, ABC, I Will Survive and Highway to Hell, all played live by our multi talented company of actor-musicians. Mix in outrageous jokes and classic slapstick, with some wicked magic, and Aladdin serves up a sizzling hot feast for all the family.
Approximate runtime 150minutes (including any interval).
