Lucy Hind: Aladdin Opening Night

Date - 5 December, 2014, All News Opening Nights Theatre

Lucy Hind is movement director for Aladdin at CAST in Doncaster which opens this evening.

In a land far, far away, yet somehow strangely familiar, Aladdin and his mother are struggling to make ends meet. Aladdin dreams of living the lifestyle of a prince and his mother – not quite the fairest in the land – imagines riches beyond her wildest dreams. If only magic existed. If only there were such things as genies and enchanted lamps… well, this is pantomime and anything is possible!

After last year’s smash-hit success, our latest festive offering promises even more. Live music, beautiful costumes, mayhem and song combine to create a Christmas treat with oodles of magic and heaps of sparkle.

Aladdin will play until Saturday 3rd January.
