The tale of runabout boy meets runaway Princess… and Slap her monkey! In a land far far away, where the sand dunes of ancient Arabia meet the sea, a Chinese spy is hot on the trail of the baddest baddies of Bagadad, in this yarn of thieves and betrayal, of magical Genies and flying carpets. There are oil lamps and gravy boats, bananas and avocados, and a Cave of Wonders with treasures beyond your wildest dreams. Oh… and a camel called Trump. Join Widow Twankey, Wishy Washy, Aladdin and the gang in this ALL NEW, never seen before, unbelievably rip-roaring blast of a comedy panto! You’ll laugh so much, you’ll wish three times just to make it stop! Aladdin! A Camel’s Tale. It’s a whole… new world!
