Aladdin - It's Raining Zen!

Synopsis:
The Pantomime story of Aladdin and the magic lamp. Widow Twankey, her no-good son Wishee Washee and the Chinese laundry usually provide the slapstick. The biggest, brightest and most magical rock 'n' roll panto in the universe! It's the Rock ?n' Roll tale of a lad called Aladdin, Whose favourite pastime was going out a gaddin'! But when accused of a crime he hadn't committed, He broke into the Palace, to be acquitted. Not amused, the Empress screamed at our champ. . . "Off with your head, or find me my lamp!" Aladdin weighed it up and went with the latter, He didn't much fancy his head on a platter! So he set off straight away to seek that which he sought, A rusty old lamp, well that's what he thought. . . Come on down to the rave in a cave, Show us your moves and dare to be brave! It's funky, it's frothy, it's groovy and cool, But don't forget. . . better bring yer cagoule! It's gonna be wet, there'll be splashes and splishes, What would you do. . . if you had three wishes?!

Dick Whittington

Synopsis:
Pantomime about a boy and his cat who set off to London to make their fortune - usually with Dick's Brother (Idle Jack) and mother - there they usually meet Baron Fitzwarren and sail away to seek treasure. In some versions King Rat goes with them to steal the treasure, in others they reach a land infested with rats where they haven't heard of cats and Dick does a deal, returning home rich he becomes Lord Mayor of London. Based extremely loosely on a real person (Richard Whittington, 1350 to 1423), there is a statue of the cat outside the Whittington Hospital in North London where Dick is supposed to have heard the bells say "Turn again Whittington, Lord Mayor of London" as he trudged away from the city. First recorded panto on this theme was in 1814.

Rapunzel Rock'n'Roll Panto

Synopsis:
Rapunzel is Sarah Nixon and Mark Chatterton's 15th Rock n' roll panto for Liverpool Everyman, and it hits the spot again with their irreverent treatment of a traditional tale. They have created a raucous romp referencing the original story very loosely, while their cunningly balanced text includes some wickedly subtle humour to keep both adults and children laughing. - The Stage
