ECC: Aladdin (9-11 Jan 2015)


Following last year’s successful production of Jack & The Beanstalk, the ECC present their latest pantomime: Aladdin. This well-loved story will be told with energy, music and dance and promises to be fun for all the family.

Aladdin lives with his mum, Widow Twankey, who runs a laundry in Old Peking in the shadow of the Imperial Palace.  Aladdin dreams of a better life when one day he meets the Emperor’s beautiful daughter, Princess Jasmine. The boy has to grow up fast when a mysterious uncle turns up asking for his help in obtaining a lamp from a magical cave. This episode sets off an exciting and hilarious chain of events that bring Aladdin love and riches beyond his wildest dreams.

Combining humour, songs and special effects, the show will delight young and old. It will feature the traditional pantomime classics, such as ‘he’s behind you!’ and ‘oh no it isn’t!’ and poke gentle fun at expat life.

The show runs from 9-11 January 2015 at the Auderghem Cultural Centre, Boulevard du Souverain 183, 1160 Brussels. Tickets (€16/€12) are available here.
