27th Dec 2009 - 9th Jan 2010

Once again ELTC return to the Exeter Barnfield Theatre with the magical pantomime, Aladdin.


Take a trip to Old Peking, and follow Aladdin on his quest to find a magic lamp for the evil magician Abanazar. When Aladdin finds the magic lamp he discovers the Genie, and his fortunes change for the better, until Abanazar kidnaps his true love Princess Lotus Flower.


Back in Widow Twankey’s laundry she is trying to get the Emperor’s undies ready for collection, but can she manage it with a misbehaving washing machine and a bad tempered dryer? Expect to see lashings of foam, bouncing laundry balls, flying pants and a dame with her gusset caught in the mangle!


There will be the usual singing, dancing, and slapstick, plus loads of laundry, including the Emperor’s smalls. Also keep an eye out for a magic carpet, Harry Potter and even the Ghostbusters!
