Aladdin

It’s lit classily like they used to be, it looks like a traditional panto, it’s everything you want and more.
Alex Belfield, Celebrity Radio 27/12/2019
Writer Eric Potts and Janice Dunn's direction keep everything moving at a good pace, the set is a fairly simple series of backdrops and curtains with the whole production brought to life with Matt Ladkin’s effective lighting design (and a big “wow” for the impressive magic carpet sequence).
