Aladdin The Pantomime – British panto script

Aladdin the pantomime

ALADDIN THE PANTOMIME

In Aladdin the pantomime, Abanazer, the wicked one seeks an infamous lamp hidden in a land far far away. Rumour has it that the lamp contains a powerful Genie who can help him rule the world. But he has no idea how to find it. Undeterred, he rings up the Slave of the Ring Hotline for help. The bimbo on the helpdesk checks her computer and informs him that yes, such a cave exists and no, he cannot enter it himself. There is only one in the whole world who can do it. His name? Aladdin. Location? Peking, China. China? That’s a bit far!

So Abanazer sets out on a journey. Aladdin, on the other side of the world is currently running for his life because he set eyes on the beautiful princess. Naturally this means he must die. But since he has no immediate plans to do this, running away seems to be the best option. Other than marrying the Princess of course. But that sort of thing doesn’t happen to young men whose mother, the Widow Twankey (currently unattached, available and let’s face it, slightly manly) owns the local laundromat. Nope. He’d have to come into a large fortune to do that.

Which is exactly what Abanazer promises him to get him to go to the cave. However, once they’re in the cave it all goes wrong. Aladdin finds the treasure and wants to send that up first, but wicked Abanazer only wants the lamp and seals Aladdin inside the cave in a rage. Leaving him with the lamp and a massive amount of treasure. The rest? Well, why don’t you have a little read and find out!

DICK TURPIN – FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH – BRITISH PANTOMIME SCRIPT

The name’s Dick. Dick Turpin. Dick’s a thief and he’s both terrible and great at it. His skills are difficult to judge because while Dick and his team of bandits have actually stolen some worthwhile items before, unfortunately (and this is a big ‘unfortunately’) some valuable property has been taken from him, too. In ‘’Dick Turpin – from the Horse’s Mouth’’ some may call it karma but in 1737 it is just sad. Now, it’s almost Christmas and with no loot and no prospects of looting, Dick decides to go straight and get a crime-free job, so he can get some money in to buy his mother a present. With what he’s put the Dame through, the poor guy has little choice in this British pantomime script.

Things take a turn in this two act comedy when, after scandalously getting involved with the Sheriff’s daughter, Ruby, she is kidnapped by a rival Highwayman, Lady, in front of Dick’s eyes! To get her back he must do what he never, in his lifetime, thought he would; get help from the law.

The adventures of a young buck, his fellow crooks, his mamma, his broad and the wild ride he goes on, on a stolen horse.

SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARVES – PANTOMIME SNOW WHITE

Many years ago, in the kingdom lived a beautiful princess, Snow White who was forced to work in the castle for her stepmother, the Evil Queen Evilynn, along with Delilah Dumpling (the cook), Douglas (Delilah’s assistant) and Rose Red (The kitchen maid). One day, a handsome Prince, Prince Valliant, arrives in the kingdom in search of ‘The most beautiful lady in the land.’ Queen Evilynn likes the look of the Prince and wants to marry him but unfortunately he fancies Snow White.

That very day, the Queen’s magic mirror tells her again that Snow White is fairest in all the land, so she plots to kill her. Mandalay, the Queen’s henchman is asked to take Snow White on a picnic with the wood choppers (Horace, Doris, Norris and Boris). Mandalay can’t carry out his task and the wood choppers come up with the idea that Snow White remains behind in the forest. After saying goodbye to her friends Snow White becomes scared and faints. Fairy Good-at-heart sends her to live with the Seven Dwarves, who take Snow White into their home.

Thinking she has won, Queen Evilynn plans a big celebration but is soon told that Mandalay failed in his task and she poisons Snow White. The Prince has learned of the Queen’s evil plan and sets out along with Sir Richard, Delilah, Douglas, Rose Red and the wood choppers. The Prince gets there to find Snow White ‘dead’ but he wakes her with a kiss. The good fairy defeats Queen Evilynn, with the help of the audience, and all is well again.

This is a pantomime Snow White packed full of songs, jokes, slapstick and family entertainment.
