VIDEO preview: The Stables’ production of Aladdin

The magic of the orient will be brought to life at the Stables theatre, in Hastings, when pantomime Aladdin opens to festive audiences on Friday 11 December.

From the Valley of the Kings in Egypt to the market place in old Peking and on to the mysterious mountains and the hidden tomb of a mighty genie, Aladdin goes in search of a magic lamp that will fulfil his destiny.
