A very warm and oriental welcome to the world of pantomime. You will enter into a magical world where anything is possible!
Remember that you, the audience, are part of this magic, and throughout the performance we will be asking for your help in defeating the evil Abanazar.

This is MAD's second pantomime, our first being the multi-Oscar winning Cinderella, which catapulted absolutely no-one to stardom. For those of you here for a second helping, forewarned is forearmed; if this is your first visit then ignorance is bliss.

As last year, we the cast have had hours of fun at rehearsal and if you enjoy watching as much as we have performing, then we will all have had a great time.

Special thanks must go to the Director, Vanessa Breach, who has worked tirelessly at every level of this production. May I also thank the many people whose faces you will not see on stage who have prepared scenery, made costumes, organised refreshments etc.

MAD is a Methodist Church based company and well over half of the church people have been involved in one form or another. So sit back, and enjoy the show - oh NO you won't... .oh YES you will... .oh NO you won't

Revd Phil Thomas (Widow Twankey)

Aladdin and his mother, Widow Twankey, live in Peking, poor but happy enough until one day, the wicked Abanazar arrives to offer them a chance of a lifetime. Will they take it and is it all it seems to be?
