IT’S panto time at Oldbury Rep and this season the group are flying high with the traditional and very popular story of Aladdin.

Written and directed by Rep member Ian Thompson, the story will follow Aladdin’s trials and tribulations as he faces not only the anger of his mother, Widow Twanky, but also the evil Abanazar and his wicked sorcery.

Join the cast as they take the audience on a journey to far off lands with a host of colourful characters, including a magical Genie, or two, and a beautiful Princess.

The production – which is not suitable for children under the age of three – runs from Friday January 12, until Saturday January 20, but there is not a performance on January 17.

Evening performances start at 7.30pm, while matinee shows on January 13, 14 and 20 begin at 2.30pm.

They can also be bought in person or by calling the box office on 0121 552 2761 on Monday evenings from 7.30pm, on the Thursday prior to opening night from 7.30pm, and at every performance.
