Wales Community Theatre Players

Wales Community Theatre Players return to The Montgomery with this genie-ous classic pantomime, Aladdin.

Aladdin is the story of a poor boy who works in a laundrette, along with his mother Widow Twankey, and his younger brother, Wishee Washee. But poverty doesn’t stop Aladdin’s dreams of one day marrying the beautiful Princess.

When the evil Abanazar arrives looking for a young boy to help him retrieve a magic lamp holding a powerful Genie, that has been hidden away in a cave for a thousand years. Aladdin agrees to help him in return for making him rich enough to marry the Princess.

Will Aladdin’s dream of marrying Princess actually come true? You’ll have to book a ticket to find out!

Please note there is no disabled access at present.

About the company

Wales Panto was founded in 1944 when Roy Staniforth wrote Robinson Crusoe at the age of 14. The production was staged at Wales Methodist Church schoolroom where it was produced every year till 1978. The early years’ profits were donated to The Red Cross.

In 1978 the group moved to the local High School due to the audience becoming too large to be accommodated at the Schoolroom and the pantomime creeping up to a three-month run. This only lasted for a few years as the pantomime also outgrew the High School, so they moved to Sheffield City Centre to The Montgomery Theatre which seats 420 people and eight performances could accommodate all the audience.

Earlier this year, they formed a new group, Wales Community Theatre Players. The new group combines the efforts of their two previous groups Wales Methodist Panto Players and Wales Musical Theatre Company.

They continue to perform their annual pantomime each January at the Montgomery Theatre and are now selling out almost 4000 tickets over the run.


Running Time: 2 hours 15 minutes (including 15-minute interval)
