Featuring a young energetic cast, dazzling dancing, sensational singing, awesome acting and hysterical humour, this production promises to be a theatrical spectacle transforming the audience into flights of fantasy, literally! This Christmas, support this talented cast of local young people in their 42nd production, in what promises to be a truly fantastic and memorable show.
Fly in to the enchanting City of Old Peking. Our ambitious hero, Aladdin has fallen in love with the beautiful and determined Princess Jasmine. Aladdin is now pursued by the hysterical Sergeant Chop & PC Suey after looking at the princess, a crime punishable by death. Meanwhile the evil magician Abanazar is in search of a magical lamp that will enable him to gain world domination. He convinces adventurous Aladdin to leave his mother, Widow Twankey (and her laundry), to help search for the mysterious lamp. After becoming trapped in the Cave of Wonders, Aladdin discovers the lamp and within it the powerful Genie. Helped by his incredible friends, the Genie of the Lamp and the Slave of the Ring, Aladdin must convince the Emperor he is worthy of his daughter Jasmine's hand before she is married off to the highest bidder. However, Abanazar is still hot on Aladdin's trail in order to reclaim the power of the lamp for himself. With help from his ragtag group of comedic family and friends, including his hapless brother Wishee Washee (and the object of his affection Notsoshy), will courageous Aladdin find his happily ever after?
