Written by Warren McWilliams, the cast start rehearsals on Friday December 9. “The cast of 40 expect to thoroughly entertain you and help make your Christmas as special and memorable as they can,” said Emlyn Moment, of the group.

“Aladdin (Josh Shippey) has to battle the evil Abanazar (Lorraine Carver) to win Jasmine’s (Eden Carver) hand in marriage.

“Meanwhile Wishy Washy (Matt Beare) also tries his hardest to entice So Shi (Rheanon Hanks) into his arms.

“The Genie (Kate Filart), who confusingly keeps changing the master he obeys according to who rubs the lamp, also tries his best to ensure that the whole story has a happy ending.

“Interrupting the story and encouraging the audience to help is Aladdin and Wishy Washy’s mum, Widow Twankey (Kevin Shippey).

“Widow Twankey runs Old Peking’s well known laundry called Twankey’s Wondrous Washarama. Her late husband Frankie Twankey was a swanky, lanky Yankee who was always after hanky panky and sadly drowned at sea.”
