Following on from the success of our 2015 pantomime Spinderella, Aladdin is the latest traditional panto to get an HQPA makeover. Telling the rags to riches story of a Chinese street urchin, we journey with Aladdin as he falls in love with a beautiful princess, battles the evil Abanazar and releases an all-powerful Genie from an enchanted lamp. Who knew that polishing the soft furnishings could lead to such adventure? With the help of his good friend Wishee-Washee, Aladdin promises to be a great evening’s entertainment… and it wouldn’t be stretching the truth too much to say that we are confident that this production of Aladdin will be the best pantomime you see us do this Christmas.
Will Abanazar’s evil schemes succeed? Will Aladdin win the hand of the princess? More importantly; will he win the other bits of her as well? Will the Genie ever escape from Robin Williams’ shadow? Find out when you watch Aladdin 2016.
