One day Aladdin spies and falls in love with the Emporer's daughter, the beautiful Princess Badroubadour. However the slimy Abanaza has his eyes on a magic lamp hidden in a cave and uses Aladdin to get it..

Hucknall's Lovelace Theatre Group promise a feast of oriental fun and eastern magic with their annual family pantomime, Aladdin, which features 14 year old Beth Garwood in the title role.
Roger Knowles, who will be directing the production, will be looking to Richard Alton, who plays panto baddie Abanaza, Mark Swinson (Widow Twanky) and Rosie Butler (Genie of the Lamp) to provide the foundation stones for success.
A witty script, written by veteren stage performer Harry Toseland, now a Hucknall Liberal Democrat member of Ashfield District Council, should appeal to th eyoung and young at heart, while energetic dance routines in the show have been choreographed by Becca Mayes.
'Aladdin' is being performed at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street, Hucknall from next Thursday 28th January to Saturday January 30 at 7.30 each night. There will also be a 2.30pm matinee performance on the Saturday. For tickets, contact the box office on 0115 9639633 or pay at the door.
