Aladdin, a poor boy from old Beijing, dreams of a time when he could meet Princess Jasmine and has his chance when the Emperor and Empress order that he becomes a cleaner at the Royal Palace if his family is to remain in their home. Meanwhile, the evil Egyptian sorcerer Abanaza has other plans for Aladdin and tricks him into opening the Cave of Wonders. Luckily, Aladdin has Su Shi, the Spirit of the Ring, to guide him and the Genie of the Lamp to help him win Princess Jasmine’s love and defeat Abanaza, his hopeless assistant, Tutankhamun and his Mummy.

With hilarious comedy from Widow Twankey, her streetwise other son, Wishee Washee, Fu Fu the kung-fu panda, Hong, Kong and Phooey, the inept Peking Policemen, plus lots of support from a very lively chorus, this very modern Aladdin will provide huge amounts of fun for audiences of all ages!
