Aladdin pantomime was last performed by the Faringdon Dramatic Society in 1990 and again in 2010. This time we have a brand new version especially written by our own Peter Webster. This will be his eleventh pantomime.
Aladdin and his idle young friends are planning what mischief they can get up to, but are taken to task by some of the citizens, just as Aladdin’s mother, Widow Twankey, arrives on the scene, getting the brunt of their displeasure.
They are interrupted by the arrival of the Sultan (who bears a striking resemblance to a certain head of state), the Vizier, the Princess and their entourage.
The Sultan brags about all he plans to do, only to be reminded by the Vizier that the palace treasury is empty. Once the procession has moved on, Aladdin, obviously smitten by the Princess, is ribbed by his friends and then brought down to earth by his mother, who talks of the job he must find….
