CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
The Pantomime story of Aladdin and the magic lamp. Times are hard at Widow Twankeyâs laundry... the smalls are getting smaller and the mangleâs in a tangle! Then - hooray! - Uncle Abanazer promises riches for allâ¦if young Aladdin will just hand him that rusty old lamp... But Wishee Washeeâs worried that it wonât go well - a laundry boy can sense these things - that smelly Abanazer is a baddy...boo hiss! Can Aladdin and the Genie of the Lamp save the day? This breathtaking adventure takes them on a thrilling and magical ride - all the way to the Emperor and his oh-so-beautiful daughter the Princess... Watch out for the slosh in the front rows, as The Nuffield Theatre takes this age-old classic pantomime story and turns it into a riot for all ages, from little ones to great-great-grannies! With oriental mystique, evil sorcery, hilarious comedy, extravagant costumes and sumptuous sets, The story of Aladdin is sheer genie-us!
