“....and they all lived happily ever after!”

That’s how most fairy stories end - after the villain has been vanquished and the hero and heroine are married.

But as we all know, every marriage has its up & downs and a year after their wedding, Cinderella and Prince Charming, like a flea wandering through the remnants of Elton John’s real hair, are going through a bad patch.

T“All children, except one, grow up....”

That’s how author J.M. Barrie opened his play and novel “Peter Pan”.

But it’s not quite true - because every Christmas, when the pantomime season opens, the grown-ups in the audience find themselves willing participants in the spectacle, songs, slapstick and supreme silliness that their children and grand children become so enthralled by.

If it’s non-stop laughter you’re after, then book your seats for “Aladdin”, this years’ fun-packed pantomime from Rainbow Valley Productions. While retaining all the classic elements that make pantomimes so increasingly popular, the emphasis with this new version of Aladdin is firmly on comedy. If it’s true that laughter is the best medicine, then this production should be made available on the National Health and served on a shiny spoon at least twice a day. Between the jokes & japes, witty wordplay and silly slapstick, there’ll also be enough singing, dancing, romance, magic, mystery and excitement to entertain audiences of all ages.
