Refreshingly new, this laugh-a-minute version adds another dimension to the great panto classic
This very original and funny script provides all the necessary ingredients for a first-class and spectacular production of this famous oriental rags-to-riches tale.
Bursting with comedy and visual business, courtesy of Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee and the two Chinese Policemen (Yu-Dun-Wong and Hu-Dun-Pong), this sensational script provides ample opportunity for audience participation, slapstick mayhem and traditional pantomime fun.
The text also contains a well-described, unusual ultra-violet scene (optional) transforming Aladdin's journey from China to Egypt into a magical and colourful fantasy. The staging can be relatively uncomplicated, but the sky's the limit for the more ambitious!
If you're ready to embark upon an unforgettable journey into the Land of the Magic Lamp, let this "in-genie-ous" script make your wish come true!
