Aladdin at Hackney EmpireSusie McKenna has written and directed pantomimes for Hackney Empire for 20 years and marks two decades with a new staging of Aladdin. Olivier Award-winning Grande Dame of pantomime Clive Rowe, who has appeared in the panto here 11 times, stars as Widow Twankey. Gemma Sutton takes on the title role, joined by Julie Yammanee as Princess Ling Mai and Empire regular Kat B as the Genie of the Lamp. It's set in the far off, far East Kingdom of Ha Ka Ney (see what they did there?), on the outskirts of old Peking. Young Aladdin dreams of finding love and making his fortune. When he discovers an enchanted lamp and meets a mysterious genie, it looks like all his wishes are about to come true - with the help of A Monkey Queen, tap-dancing pandas and his larger-than-life mum.

 

About Hackney Empire

Renowned East London entertainment venue designed by celebrated architect Frank Matcham. Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin both trod the boards here in the Hackney Empire's music hall heyday but the unique domed building was reduced to being used as a bingo hall for much of the 60s and 70s.
