One love story, one magic lamp, one HUGE adventure

Back To Ours and State of the Arts Academy present Aladdin

Hop onto the Back to Ours magic carpet and fly straight into the magical world of Aladdin, where a beautiful love story, flying carpets, a wish-granting genie, an evil sorcerer, and a certain magic lamp await…

There’s nothing like a pantomime to get people in the festive spirit, so Back to Ours have teamed up with State of the Arts Academy to bring Aladdin to people’s doorsteps and give communities a festive treat. 

Written by Jon Parker and Mark Fairweather, and produced by State of the Arts, Aladdin features every ingredient for the perfect evening – a fabulous cast, music, laugh-out-loud comedy, beautiful costumes, and LOADS of boos and hisses.

Appearing at four venues across the city – St Michael’s Church, Thornton Village Hall, North Bransholme Community Centre and Derringham Bank Church – tickets are now down to the last few after huge interest.  

Community Engagement Manager Tony Forrester said; 

‘We work closely with communities all year, so we really wanted to bring Aladdin to these amazing community spaces as a thank you for their continued input and support. 

‘Back to Ours is about giving families a good night out at affordable prices, and who doesn’t love a good panto to get you in the Christmas spirit? If that doesn’t warm your cockles, we’re even offering a free Mr Moo’s ice cream when you get there.’ 

Director Louise Yates continued: 

‘You all know the Back to Ours ethos – we’re all about putting great events in venues in the hearts of communities with a lot of sparkle and a big dose of the unexpected. 

‘We’re chuffed that tickets have gone so quickly – it’s going to be a cracking show.’ 

Aladdin will be showing on the following dates: 

Monday December 10 – Michaels & All Saints Church Hall (Orchard Park Road)

Tuesday December 11 – Thornton Village Hall (opposite the Octagon on Walker Street)

Wednesday December 12 – North Bransholme Community Centre
