Make all your Christmas wishes come true with a trip to the Mercury’s magical pantomime, Aladdin!


Journey with us 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?


You’ll be thrilled to hear our Great British Pantomime award-winning ugly sisters, Antony Stuart-Hicks and Dale Superville (Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White) will be unleashed on Colchester 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 join us for a hilarious, fun-packed adventure full of song, dance and all the usual Mercury magical mayhem!
