A spokesman said: “The action is set in the East Peking suburb of Flung-Dung, the Western hills of China and desert plains of Egypt.

“Wicked magician Abanazar has ambitions to become the greatest sorcerer of all time and with knowledge of a powerful genie trapped inside an old oil lamp somewhere in a cave in the Western Hills of China, he sets off on a quest to claim it.

“But first, he must find a young lad known as Aladdin who lives with his mother, Widow Twankey, at their family-run laundry in Peking.

“Aladdin is the chosen one and only he can open the enchanted cave within which the lamp lies.

“However, the young lad isn’t interested in lamps - he’s too busy avoiding arrest by Inspector Lau Zee and his hapless police force for fraternising with the beautiful Princess Ki-Lee.

“Will Abanazar claim the lamp? Will Aladdin get the girl of his dreams? Or will chaos resume in this laugh-a-minute pantomime by award winning writer Kei Bailey.”
