Aladdin will be a magical, boisterous production and the first show to be directed by The Dukes new Artistic Director, Sarah Punshon.

“I’m a huge fan of Mike’s Kenny’s awardwinning writing and am delighted to be able to work with him on his energetic take on a much-loved tale,” said Sarah.

Aladdin runs from November 24 2017 to January 6, 2018 in The Round where The Dukes has been staging its festive productions for the past five years. The intimacy of the space has proved a hit with families who enjoy being close to all the action, fun and live music.

Audiences will join Aladdin and the Genie as they embark on a journey of discovery, danger and romance. The everyday is transformed into the exotic in a world where the carpets are magical and the wishes unlimited.

Playing Aladdin will be star of the ITV series Britannia High, Marcquelle Ward who was award nominated for his debut West End role as The Rum Tum Tugger in Cats at the London Palladium in 2015.
