The New Wolsey Theatre Announce Rock ‘N’ Roll Panto Title for 2019!

18 Feb 2019 News

This year, the New Wolsey Theatre is thrilled to present Aladdin – the Rock ‘n’ Roll Panto. This year marks the 5th year Ipswich Building Society have sponsored the New Wolsey Theatre’s sell-out pantomime.


Thu 28 Nov 2019 to Sat 1 Feb 2020

 Written by Peter Rowe, and performed in the New Wolsey Theatre’s iconic actor-musician style.

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 Lotus Blossom, 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 and I WILL SURVIVE all played live by a 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.
