Aladdin - The Rockin' Panto

** THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED - ticket holders will be contacted by our Box Office team. We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment caused. **

All your wishes will be granted in this feel-good festive treat, full of genies, glitter, and fantastic live music.  

Widow Twankey’s in a spin – there’s the Emperor’s robes to be cleaned, a banquet to be cooked and the mysterious magician, Abanazer, has suddenly arrived. Then her eldest son Aladdin falls for Princess Fire Cracker, the Emperor’s daughter! But when Aladdin gets his hands on an ancient oil lamp, a rocking green Genie magically appears to make all his dreams come true. Can he 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 with over 20 rock, pop and soul hits woven into the action including I Will Survive, Born to Be Wild, Papa Don’t Preach and I’m A Believer, all performed live by the multi-talented cast of 10 actor musicians.

Get ready for The Rockin’ Panto blend of big laughs, incredible live music, and lots of panto magic and sparkle, in a show that's fun for all the family.
