If you and I think we may have troubles then we've never met the Twankeys.
Widow Marge O’ Reen Twankey has been online dating for 2 years and is yet to get a wink. Oldest daughter, Aladdin, has just had her hair cut and keeps on getting mistaken for a boy – will local royalty and heart-throb Prince Jasper ever notice her now? And if that wasn’t enough Lady Lilith D’ijin has arrived in town claiming herself the long-lost relative of The Twankey family and all she wants for Christmas is some rusty old lamp….
Will Marge O’Reen find her true love (and come to think of it, a customer that might use her laundry service)? And what will happen when Aladdin rescues the bogging lamp from the local landfill mine…
Aladdin is a brand new, disco-tastic take on the classic rags-to-riches story and we have a few tickets spare for our glitzy opening night this Friday (28 Nov 7.30pm). macrobert is widely acknowledged as one of the country’s top pantomimes, so get ready to cheer, boo-gie and hiss your way through another Christmas spectacular at macrobert! Aladdin runs to 4 January 2015. Flares and afro wig optional.
