Friday, April 21st, 2017

Big Monkey Theatre is excited to announce our next production in the Botanical Gardens for 2017-2018 will be a magic carpet ride with Aladdin & the Magic Lamp, adapted by Les Winspear!

When a young Baghdad street urchin is trapped in a cave by a greedy magician he finds a magic lamp and a great adventure begins. Come with Aladdin and his new friend the Genie on a mad-cap, magic carpet ride to defeat the enemies of the lamp, stop the plans of the wicked Vizier and win the hand of the beautiful Princess Apricot.

With cheeky twists, lots of laughs and catchy songs to get your camel’s feet tapping you’ll love Big Monkey Theatre’s re-telling of this classic tale from the Arabian Nights.
