Set in Pekin this Chinese themed pantomime took us all on a journey through China with the hero Aladdin, the son of washer woman Widow Twankey, falling in love with Princess So Shy the daughter of the Emperor of All China! The evil magician Abanazer wants the magic lamp that is hidden in a cave that only Aladdin can enter but he traps Aladdin in the cave with the lamp. Aladdin rubs the lamp to make the genie appear and becomes a very rich man and marries the princess. However, Abanazer tricks the princess into giving him the lamp by offering new lamps for old and he kidnaps her and takes her to his palace in the snow-covered mountains – with the help of his mother and his brother Wishy Washy, Aladdin sets off to rescue her.
With Chinese dragons, Chinese policemen, lots of laundry, flying carpets and many more magical oriental wonders this was a great panto and was enjoyed by all.
