Once again it’s pantomime time in Hathersage. Oh yes it is!
Tickets go on sale this weekend for Hathersage Players’ production of Aladdin, a tale of love, magic and intrigue set in ancient China.
Can Aladdin overcome his humble origins as the son of a poor Widow Twankey, Peking’s premier laundress, and marry the lovely Princess Jasmine Scented-Rice? All he needs to do is persuade the Emperor that his new found riches are honestly earned. Once he has done that, escaped capture from the Palace executioners, defeated the evil Abanazar and rescued the kidnapped Princess, he should be home and dry!
With enough jokes, songs, dances, hisses and boos to keep the whole family entertained, Aladdin runs from February 20 to February 23 at Hathersage Memorial Hall. Performances begin at 7.30pm, with a matinee on the Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets (£6/£5 concessions) go on sale at Hathersage Methodist Church Hall on January 26, from 10am – 12noon, and afterwards from Bob and Judy Dawson, tel. (01433) 650533.
