The Everyman Theatre will be performing the ever-popular pantomime version of Aladdin as a festive family treat. The theatre invites you to join the eponymous hero on his journey from rags to riches, defeating the evil Abanazar and winning the heart of the beautiful princess.

The story of Aladdin was first dramatised for a British audience in 1788 by John O’Keefe for the Theatre Royal in Covent Garden, which means it has been a popular subject for pantomime for over 200 years!

The Everyman’s annual family-friendly pantomime features a flying carpet, magic tricks, good clean fun and frolics with Wishee Washee and Widow Twankey (played by William Elliott) and the wishful thinking with the Genie of the Lamp! There will also be the comic antics of Tweedy the Clown from Giffords Circus following his run-away success last year.
