ALADDIN or The Wonderful Lamp
Like everyone else we have been turned topsy-turvy by this Covid virus and the ever changing regulations to keep us all as safe as possible. Certainly it soon became clear that we in Wales were not going to be able to open theatres for pantomimes and Christmas shows. It won’t be the same, but we are going to upload our pantomime onto the web and invite you all to pretend you are at the puppet theatre watching the show.
We have chosen that traditional favourite, ALADDIN, or the Wonderful Lamp. A version of this story is told in practically every country of the world but our version is loosely based on that which appears as one of the stories told by Sherazade in the Arabian Nights.It’s the story of a poor Chinese boy, the son of a widowed washer-woman, from Pekin . who gets the better of the wicked Abanazar who pretends to be his uncle.
The story takes Aladdin and Abanazar into the mountains, to a secret cave and a magical treasure. Aladdin is locked inside this cave but manages to escape with the help of a Magic Lamp and a Giant Green Genie.
Abanazar nearly defeats Aladdin but, with the help of his girlfriend, a beautiful Princess, Aladdin tricks the wicked Abanazar, marries the Princess and his mother,Widow Twankey, marries the Emperor, and everyone lives very happily indeed.
