For many years Aladdin has remained in the top ten of the UK's favourite pantomimes - no doubt aided by the popularity of Disney's film adaptation.

Over the years we have seen a multitude of different Aladdins all set in different locations - from the traditional China, to Disney's Arabia, to Ancient Egypt, however China still remains to be the preferred location for most performances of this pantomime.

Aladdin follows the story of a young impoverished boy who lives with his mother, Widow Twankey. A sorceror comes to their village and convinces both Aladdin and his mother that he is here to help Aladdin. However, his real intention is that he will use Aladdin to try and gain access to a magical cave filled with treasure as the sorceror wants to get his hands on a powerful magic lamp.

Whilst in the cave the sorceror tricks Aladdin and leaves him there to perish - however Aladdin now has the magical lamp and with the help of the powerful genie held captive inside he is transported back home to his mother. Aladdin uses his new found power to bring great prosperity to his family and also win him the love of the Princess Jasmine, however the sorceror is still in the shadows watching and is jealous of Aladdin as he had intended that the magic lamp should belong to him.
