Hereford Amateur Panto Society present Aladdin

The Courtyard

Aladdin, his loving mum Widow Twankey and Wishee Washee his idiot brother, work hard in their launderette but they have very little to show for it. Aladdin dreams of a time when he will own many launderettes and marry the beautiful Princess Jasmine. However, this is seemingly impossible as Princess Jasmine is only allowed to marry a rich Prince. Suddenly, Aladdin’s luck looks about to change when his ‘long lost’ uncle Abanazar arrives, with enticing tales of a hidden cave with endless treasure. It seems that Aladdin may finally get his wish after all, but can Abanazar really be trusted? 340555
