our annual pantomime


30/11/18 - 05/01/19

Venue: The Forum Studio Theatre

Aladdin is Tip Top’s 10th pantomime here in the cosy Forum Studio Theatre. As regulars will know we have so much to offer the whole family.

Featuring everything you have come to love about the Tip Top pantomime...silly comic-this year he’ll be Wishee Washee, a daft dame-this time she’s Widow Twankey in an array of outrageous frocks, a pretty panda, custard pies, ‘e’s be’ind yer, even more lashings of audience participation…and oh...and you might recognise the odd joke or two!

From Old Peking to Chester’s Forum Studio Theatre join Aladdin (hooray) as he battles the evil Abanazar (boo) in his bid to gain the magic lamp. And will he win? Oh, yes he will! Come and see Aladdin rescue the Princess Jasmine as he meets the magical Genie and cheer him as he soars through the sky on his magic carpet.

Enjoy plenty of songs, dance, laughter and sumptuous costumes in our traditional family-friendly panto by Peter Swingler with prices for all with a family ticket at just £40.
