Aladdin - a traditional pantomime

A pantomime, by Ben Nunan. Directed by Neil Border
January 2017

Aladdin

Synopsis

This new script follows the traditional panto story of Aladdin, set mostly in China but with travels elsewhere. It includes all the familiar elements and much more besides. Aladdin is a not very street-wise young man who falls in love with the Princess but her father, the Emperor, will never let them marry. Aladdin lives with his mother, Widow Twankey, and his brother, Wishee Washee, and works at the family laundry business. When the evil Abanazar sends Aladdin after a magic lamp, everything changes. Full of jokes - groan-inducing and great - wordplay, slapstick and songs, this is very much the traditional family panto but with plenty of pace and energy.

The Rottingdean panto is one of the biggest pantomimes in Brighton and the surrounding area. The Society prides itself on delivering a very high standard of production every year. The panto has been a near sell-out for the last few years; let's go all the way this winter.

Continuing his run of pantomimes - acting or directing - Neil Border has the privilege of bringing this brand new and wonderful script to Rottingdean. Neil aims to follow the successes of Frankenstein the panto, Beauty and the Beast, Leonardo da Panto, Dick Whittington, The Three Musketeers - Le Panteau by injecting life and excitement into this popular panto.
