Aladdin

A new version by Bille Brown. Original Score by Gareth Valentine

Following last year’s sell-out success, Ian McKellen returns to The Old Vic as Widow Twankey, the ultimate pantomime dame. He’s joined by Roger Allam as Abbanazar and Frances Barber as Dim Sum. Sean Mathias directs this classic show for all the family.
