1001 Arabian Nights (And A Matinee)

December 2019

a traditional British pantomime by TLC Creative

directed by Lynne Yates and Bill Horsley

There’s trouble brewing in old Baghdad! Unless the Princess marries before her 21st Birthday, the evil Vizier will take control of the city!

Things look grim… but hang on! A posse of would-be heroes are here to save the day! The love sick Ali Barber (who pines for the Princess), his dim-witted brother Singbad the sailor and his fearsome mother, Dame Barber are ready to intervene and foil the villain’s fiendish plot.

They are helped along the way by their pal ‘Bob’ (a lad with a secret), a pantomime camel named Humpy and a lady Genie who has been stuck in a magic ruby for far too long!

Music, songs and laughter combine to produce entertainment for all the family!
