Written by Andrew Pollard and directed by Ryan McBryde, the team that brought you the award winning Cinderella!

Make all your Christmas wishes come true with a trip to the Mercury’s magical pantomime, Aladdin!

Journey with us to distant shores where the penniless Aladdin dreams of winning the heart of the rebellious Princess Jasmine.

When he is tempted by an evil sorceress with the promise of untold riches, our young hero finds himself trapped in the Cave of Wonders with nothing but his wits and a battered old lamp. Little does he know that its contents will change his life for ever.

Will Aladdin defeat the wicked sorceress? Will the Princess Jasmine ever notice him? And will the Genie of the Lamp make all of his wishes come true?

So hop aboard your magic carpet and join us for a hilarious, fun-packed adventure full of song, dance and all the usual Mercury magical mayhem!

Please be aware this show contains flashing lights and loud bangs. If you’d prefer to attend a relaxed performance (where lighting and sound effects will be dampened) we have two scheduled: Sun 12 Dec at 12pm and Thu 6 Jan at 2pm.

Our Creative Engagement team have put together a Resource Pack, which also includes information about our Pantomime workshops which we can schedule to coincide with a performance.
