What's On In Oxfordshire & Berkshire
Pantomime: Aladdin, Chipping Norton
14 November, 2018 - 14 January, 2019
Aladdin is the 2018 pantomime at the lovely Chipping Norton Theatre in Oxfordshire. It’s a lovely small theatre so it’s a fantastic place for kids to get a great view and really be immersed in the performance.
I was lucky enough to go along with my 6 and 8 year old to see the performance. It was BRILLIANT. They had everything you could want from a panto. The actors were full of enthusiasm and were obviously enjoying themselves, the atmosphere was great with all the kids and grown ups really getting into the songs and plenty of boos and oh yes he is, oh no he’s not. Being a small theatre meant everyone was close to the action and when the performers moved into the audience, they felt larger than life.
Far, far away in a mysterious land, Aladdin is about to embark on the greatest adventure of all time…

Calling all intrepid explorers! Grab your compass and hop aboard the bi-plane as the nation’s favourite traditional panto heads for Egypt.
With dancing mummies, disappearing pyramids and a deeply daft genie, expect a laughter-filled spectacular. This is Aladdin as you’ve never seen it before! When Aladdin meets Jasmine, both are sure their luck will change, but the wicked Abanazar has other plans.
Family friendly from start to finish, and packed with magical marvels and toe-tapping tunes, this is the Chippy Panto you’ve been wishing for.
