Rowntree Players are proud to present Aladdin - that all time favourite.

Rowntree Players

Saturday 9 December to Saturday 16 December 2017

It's time for yet another rollicking romp of a panto and this year Rowntree Players are whizzing you off to Peking to enjoy the perennial favourite Aladdin.

In the depths of China the evil Abanazar will stop at nothing to gain control of every magical artefact in the world. All that stands in his way are a cave of wonders, a rather strong willed princess and our hero Aladdin. With the assistance of a magic lamp, a flying carpet, an all powerful genie and, of course, the comedy contributions of Widow Twankey and Wishee Washee there is no way Abanazar can win. Is there...?

To find out come and see Aladdin at The Joseph Rowntree Theatre from 9th - 16th December 2017.
