Aladdin is one of the most popular pantomime stories and Chris Jordan’s script promises to be a spectacular feast for the senses and treat for all the family to enjoy.
The villainous Abanazaar has consulted an ancient Egyptian oracle to learn how he can obtain wealth and power, but the Genie of the Ring is on hand to thwart his evil schemes. Whilst we’re off to Old Peking to meet our hero-to-be, Aladdin, the hapless Wishee Washee, and their mother Widow Twankey.
Meanwhile, the Emperor has had to make most of his staff redundant. He’s left with the dim PC Pong to maintain order, and his daughter So-Shi, to flog to the highest bidder. Naturally, So-Shi has other ideas for her future.
Will So-Shi and Aladdin get it together? Will they thwart the plans of the evil Abanazaar? And just how much glitter is too much at this time of year? Join us for this fun-filled production to really shake off those winter blues.

Who is Theo?
By David L Kimple
Amidst the late-night din of St. Patrick’s Day in New York City, Donna comes home to find a highly intoxicated man named Theo, who is dressed like a leprechaun, in her apartment. Mistaking Theo for her roommate Jamie’s sublet, Donna puts him into the empty room only to learn that Jamie is still home. With no explanation of how he got in, Donna and her roommates try to figure out where Theo came from and how to get him out of the apartment. Theo’s undeniable charm and seemingly magical habits, however, don’t make it easy. After everything from a police chase and zombie apocalypse, we find out who we are, who we could be, and who is Theo?

DIRK GENTLY’S HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY
by Arvind Ethan David, Douglas Adams, James Goss
After The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams went on to create Dirk Gently, a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability, and a love of cats and pizza. In Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, Dirk finds himself on the trail of a gruesome murderer who is somehow involved with the works of Coleridge, quantum physics, and the enigmatic study of the Cambridge Professor of Chronology. Ultimately, the stakes of the case are far greater than a single murder, but go to the fate of life on Earth. Confused? Don’t be — everything is connected.
