Widow Twankey invites you to the party!

Sponsored by Ipswich Building Society.

Widow Twankey’s in a spin – there’s the Emperor’s robes to be cleaned, stir fry to be cooked and the mysterious magician, Abanazer, to be catered for. Then her eldest son Aladdin falls for Princess Fire Cracker, the Emperor’s daughter, and she nearly chokes on her chop suey. But when Aladdin and his pet monkey, Cuddles, get their hands on an ancient oil lamp, a rocking green Genie magically appears to make all their dreams come true. Can they outwit the evil Abanazer, dodge the Emperor’s dragons, and prove that a Princess and a peasant can make the perfect pair?

This ancient tale gets a brand new twist, incorporating over twenty classic songs including I’m A Believer, Papa Don’t Preach, ABC, I Will Survive and Highway to Hell, all played live by our multi talented company of actor-musicians. Mix in outrageous jokes and classic slapstick, with some wicked magic, and Aladdin serves up a sizzling hot feast for all the family.

If you're going to be using our pre-recorded Audio Description service please be sure to pre-book your headset with our Box Office Team 24 hours in advance and collect 30 mins before the show.

Please note, the one and only late night special is Fri 20 Dec at 9pm.

What the public say

Once again the New Wolsey have put us in the right frame of mind for the Christmas season and offered up a dazzling, hugely enjoyable show filled with laughs and a juke-box full of musical treats

East Anglian Daily Times

It's December, so it must be panto time ( oh yes it is, oh no it isn’t). And at The New Wolsey Theatre, Ipswich there is the usual high standard offering of their actor-musician version of the well known genre.
