Aladdin dreams of a time when he could meet Princess Jasmine and has his chance when the grumpy Emperor Sing-Lo orders that he becomes a cleaner at the royal palace if his family is to remain in their home. Meanwhile the evil Egyptian sorcerer Abanaza has other plans for Aladdin and tricks him into opening the cave of wonders. Luckily, Aladdin has Su Shi to guide him and The Genie of the Lamp who help him win Princess Jasmine’s love and defeat Abanaza and his Mummy. With hilarious comedy support from Widow Twankey, Fu Fu the kung-fu panda, Hong, Kong and a spectacular chorus, this modern pantomime script has everything you’d expect from Aladdin and more!
