It’s Panto time again – OH YES IT IS……

The Exmouth Players present ‘Aladdin’ written by Alan P Frayn at The Blackmore Theatre, Bicton Street, Exmouth.

Please see below for production dates and times.

Refreshingly new, this laugh-a-minute pantomime adds another dimension to the great panto classic, providing all the necessary ingredients for a first-class rags-to-riches tale.

Bursting with comedy and visual business, courtesy of Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee and the two Chinese Policemen (Yu-Dun-Wong and Hu-Dun-Pong), there is ample opportunity for the audience to participate and of course witness the slapstick mayhem and enjoy the traditional panto fun!

If you’re ready to embark upon an unforgettable journey into The Land of the Magic Lamp, then let this “in-genie-ous” panto make your wish come true!

This amateur production of ‘Aladdin’ is presented by special arrangement with Stage Right Creative Limited
