Aladdin: Magic carpet brings Aladdin stars to the Waterfront!

This year’s Christmas pantomime at Belfast Waterfront opens on Friday 25 November 2016

Is it a high flying bathmat… is it a turbo-charged Persian rug?  No, it’s Aladdin, Princess Jasmine and Widow Twankey gliding into Belfast Waterfront on their amazing magic carpet!

And while all the treasure in Aladdin’s cave couldn’t buy you a square yard of this magic carpet, audiences will get much more than their money’s-worth at Aladdin – the best value panto in town!


Pantomime wishes really do come true at Aladdin this Christmas!  It’s the family adventure to top them all – children will love every magical moment … and so will the grown-ups!

It’s Waterfront pantomime tradition for boys and girls, mums and dads, aunties and uncles to get right up close to the characters and become part of the adventure as it unfolds.  This is what makes Waterfront pantos really special!  Aladdin promises to keep this tradition alive as audiences are whisked off on an amazing adventure to a magical far off land…. a land of goodies, baddies, princesses, genies and hidden treasure!

Directed by Lisa May and produced by Martin Lynch, Aladdin is brought to life by a fabulous cast headed up by everyone’s favourite panto dame, Ross Anderson-Doherty, as Widow Twankey.  Aladdin also stars Jolene O’Hara as Jasmine and Gavin Peden as Aladdin.

With the help of the trusted Widow Twankey, will Aladdin and Princess Jasmine escape the clutches of the evil Abanazar and live happily ever after?

If you want to know, you’ll have to go!
