ALADDIN

Aladdin

By TLC Creative

 

The wicked Abanazer is seeking the magic lamp that contains the all-powerful Genie, so that he can rule the world, and is just steps away from succeeding! Is all hope lost? No! Help is at hand! A family posse of wannabe heroes are here to foil Abanazer’s evil scheme!

The innocent local lad, Aladdin, his brother, the cheeky Wishee Washee and their fearsome mother,washerwoman Widow Twankey are ready to intervene and save the day!

Throw in a magic carpet, a mystical Slave of the Ring, the Empress of China, a beautiful princess and a couple of police officers and you have all the ingredients for a fantastic tale and great entertainment.

We are crossing our fingers that we will be able to bring live theatre back to Chipping Sodbury in January 2021 in the form of the pantomime "Aladdin".

We are constantly reviewing the ongoing situation in terms of rehearsals, backstage, performance and audience to ensure that we can keep everyone's safety at the heart of what we do.

Aladdin began it’s existence as a pantomime at Covent Garden in 1788, but not in a form that we would easily recognise today. The Harlequinade characters were unnamed with the exception of one- “Aladdin’s Mother”.

The legend of someone being granted three magical wishes dates back to the 3rd Century AD. “The Book of Sindibad” in the 9th Century AD  is in part the framework of the “Arabian Nights”, in which the tale of “Aladdin” appears
