Panto performers are in high spirits as they dazzle and delight spectators with their 25th anniversary show.

The Manor Operatic Society are celebrating their commemorative milestone with a production of Aladdin at Sheffield City Hall until January 6.

Join in and become engrossed in the spectacle of the traditional panto as street urchin Aladdin and Princess Jasmine fly on a magic carpet ride through the dusty streets of Agrabah.

The story takes you on a spectacular journey as they fight their way through baddies and villains to try and retrieve the magical lamp from the mysterious Cave of Wonders.

In traditional panto style, extra characters provide the much loved slapstick comedy element; two eccentric Chinese policemen, Wong and Pong, the wicked magician Abanazar and the larger than life Widow Twankey. Laugh out loud at the baking scene, the sing songs and musical buckets game which are always a delight.

Featuring a spectacular glittering stage set and some of the productions most famous songs such as ‘Arabian Nights’ and ‘A Whole New World’, Aladdin is the perfect panto for all the family this festive season.
