"ALADDIN & His Magic Lamp"
Triple Treat bring another favourite pantomime story to life on stage with an adult cast plus children's chorus from Planetdance. The show consists of fun characters, song and dance routines, colourful costumes and backdrops and lots of audience participation.
Firstly we meet Abanazar, a thieving scoundrel who tells us his one dream is to trick Aladdin into entering the cave at the outskirts of Old Peking and getting him the Magic Lamp which will give him untold wealth and power. Next we go to the very unusual Widow Twankey's Chinese Laundry where we meet her two sons, Wishee Washee, a hard working boy who gets into trouble and mischief all the time and Aladdin who dreams of marrying the Princess one day, if he could only be wealthy and powerful.
But, unfortunately Aladdin is caught in the palace grounds meeting the Princess and is caught by the palace guards. Abanazar offers to free him if Aladdin will go into the cave and get the Magic Lamp, which he agrees to do. However, when in the cave, Aladdin is dazzled by all the wonderful treasures, and has second thoughts about giving Abanazar the Magic Lamp. Abanazar gets angry and seals the cave entrance with Aladdin still in the cave! Aladdin rubs the Magic Lamp and is granted three wishes by the Genie of the Lamp.
We find Aladdin has escaped the cave and become wealthy and powerful, thanks to the Genie of the Lamp, who Aladdin says he will set free. Aladdin plans to marry the Princess, but before he can propose, Abanazar tricks the Princess into swapping the Magic Lamp for an old one and before she knows it, she has given away Aladdin's Lamp and all his wealth and power.
Abanazar makes the Genie of the Lamp do all his dirty work, but then Widow Twankey grabs the Magic Lamp and says if he wants to be wealthy and powerful, he will have to marry her! Aladdin is free to marry the princess and asks Wishee Washee to be his best man. He also makes his third wish to grant the Genie of the Lamp her freedom. In gratitude the Genie says she will be Aladdin and the Princess's servant for the rest of her life.
All that is left to do is to sing a happy finale song and Wishee Washee tells everyone: Our Pantomime is over, we hope you've all had fun, Aladdins got his Magic Lamp and Abanazars got my mum!!!
