EYES to the skies and mind your head as Aladdin will be swooping into town this month full of Eastern promises of adventure, danger and enchantment for all ages.
Join him, Wishee Washee and, of course, everyone’s favourite laundry-themed panto dame, the outrageous Widow Twankey, as they journey to old Peking – well, to the Tivoli theatre, Wimborne actually – on one high-flying, magic carpet caper after another, encountering a curious lamp, an evil sorcerer and a wish-granting genie en route.
Will the beautiful Princess Jasmine appear? Will Aladdin’s lamp-buffing wish come true? And will Widow Twankey ever stop with the double entendres?
If you want to know, you need to go!
The panto is presented by Made-to-Measure Productions who, due to very popular demand, are also staging two adults-only performances of the story, called P*ssed Up Panto, Aladdin.
It’s strictly for ages 16+ and Widow Twankey might just have a new nickname – you have been warned.
The main family panto runs until January 2, 2023.
