Aladdin (Hackney)

Aladdin (Hackney)

Your wish will come true this winter as Aladdin flies into Hackney Empire!


Hackney Empire’s dream team are celebrating their 20th year at the helm of our spectacular pantomime. Join us on a magical journey of the much-loved tale of Aladdin!


All the way in Ha-Ka-Ney, 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 tap-dancing pandas and his larger-than-life mum, can he win the hand of his Princess? Or will an evil magician, some madcapped policemen and a very large pile of laundry stand in his way?


We’ve got a cast of stars straight from the West End, including a much anticipated return of Tameka Empson and Olivier Award-winner Clive Rowe as the Dame; the biggest, best song and dance numbers and plenty of chances to boo and cheer in this perfect Christmas family treat.
