Garden Suburb Theatre is delighted to present a brand new version of Aladdin! created especially for us. We guarantee you lots of fun and silliness; we’ll be using all the traditional panto elements such as chases, custard pies and audience participation, bad jokes, mild peril, men dressed as women and girls dressed as boys.

We are looking for a cast of thousands – well, 25 – 30. There are plenty of brilliant roles for adults and children. There will be dancing and singing, but don’t be put off if you don’t want to do that, as not all parts require it.
