Aladdin – It wouldn't be Christmas without a visit to the Gaiety Panto!
Take a magical carpet ride to this year's Gaiety Pantomime, Aladdin. An Arabian tale of true love, magic wishes and dastardly dealings, this year's Panto will excite and delight all ages with the extra helping of song, dance, slapstick and laughter that you would come to expect from the Gaiety's festive extravaganza.
The mystical ‘Cave of Desire' holds the magic lamp that can only be recovered by one of true heart. Our hero Aladdin, is tricked by his devious “Uncle” into retrieving the lamp and we enter a world of wonder and awe as the ‘Genie of the Lamp' makes his wishes come true. However, be careful what you wish for as you may end up with more than you bargained for…!
Featuring a stellar cast of old favourites including Joe Conlan as ‘Widow Twankey' and Nicholas Grennell as ‘Abanazer', Gaiety also introduce the West End talent Julian Capolei as ‘Aladdin' and the gorgeous ‘Suzie Seweify' as ‘Princess Jasmine'. This is no ordinary panto, it's the Gaiety Panto!
