Although not a common story line, this pantomime by Norman Robbins contains the classic ingredients of goodies, baddies, pantomime dame, corny jokes and "behind you" scenes to have you delighted and groaning to the end. Find out how Ali Baba, with a lot of help from his friends, overcomes the evil Al Raschild and how Tinbad the Tailor stitches up the plot. We do not guarantee forty thieves (the wardrobe manager won't produce the costumes!) but we do offer plenty of laughs and excitement for children and adults alike. Christmas fun for all the family.
