Aladdin rides his magic carpet in the distance, behind a magic lamp


Pantomime returns to Colchester in 2021 with another spectacular production from the Mercury Theatre. This year, treat yourself to a story of magic and untold riches as the classic tale of Aladdin hits the stage.

Journey to distant shores where the penniless Aladdin dreams of winning the heart of the rebellious Princess Jasmine.

When he is tempted by an evil sorcerer with the promise of untold riches, our young hero finds himself trapped in the Cave of Wonders with nothing but his wits and a battered old lamp. Little does he know that it’s contents will change his life for ever.

Will Aladdin defeat the wicked sorcerer? Will the Princess Jasmine ever notice him? And will the Genie of the Lamp make all of his wishes come true?

Colchester's panto is always a treat and you’ll be thrilled to hear the Great British Pantomime award-winning ugly sisters, Antony Stuart-Hicks and Dale Superville (Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White) will be unleashed once again, and after a year off they’re chomping at the bit to release even more panto madness on unsuspecting audiences!

So hop aboard your magic carpet and head to Colchester for a hilarious, fun-packed adventure full of song, dance and all the usual Mercury magical mayhem!
