Aladdin

If it’s non-stop laughter you’re after, then book your seats for “Aladdin”, this years’ fun-packed pantomime from Rainbow Valley Productions. 

While retaining all the classic elements that make pantomimes so increasingly popular, the emphasis with this new version of Aladdin is firmly on comedy.  If it’s true that laughter is the best medicine, then this production should be made available on the National Health and served on a shiny spoon at least twice a day. Between the jokes & japes, witty wordplay and silly slapstick, there’ll also be enough singing, dancing, romance, magic, mystery and excitement to entertain audiences of all ages. 

Start Time: Friday 22nd & 29th November - 7pm

                 Saturday 23rd & 30th November - 2pm

                 Sunday 24th November & 1st December - 2pm
