YJA meets Aladdin

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

With a magical story of love and adventure, Pantomime season is returning to the Skegness Embassy Theatre.

The well-known panto ‘Aladdin’ follows Aladdin and Window Twanky on a romantic comedy adventure that takes you through the special streets of old Peking.

On his adventure, Aladdin discovers a carpet and he rubs a magic lamp and then appears a wish-granting genie. Aladdin’s wicked uncle Abanazar hears rumours of this genie and battles Aladdin for the lamp and genie!

A spokesman from the Embassy Theatre said: “Aladdin is a story of adventure and love, where the hero and his uncle battle in the pursuit of a golden lamp with extraordinary powers. For 2017, your wish is our command, the only two things you have to do is believe and… rub the lamp!”

This pantomime, which looks like being a huge success, is a special one because it has been specially adapted to meet some needs of people who may or may not find it difficult to attend a more traditional performance.

Remember, all you have to do is believe in magic and in yourself and if you need any help all you do is… rub the lamp!


Next week, we’ll be at the Embassy to see the production so watch out for our review but, before then, as the cast came to our school, you can earwig on some interesting chats that took place in the hall!

This Magna Vitae Productions’ spectacular begins December 15th.

    Well done team. To interview the panto cast in a packed school hall takes a bit of courage and you did really well. Your interview takes us closer to what it’s like to be an actor.

    I know you’ll be looking forward to interviewing the cast after their Tuesday performance.

    This sounds like so much fun! I love a good panto and it’s great listening to the interviews. Let’s hope wicked old Abanazar doesn’t run off with the magic lamp?!
