Aladdin Pantomime Script

Aladdin dreams of a life full of adventure, not his dreary existence at the Lost-Sock Laundrette of Old Peking. When the evil sorcerer Abanaza is awoken from his tomb, he is determined to conquer the world. But without the genie in the magical lamp of the orient, he has no power. Can Aladdin thwart his plans and save the day? With hilarious comedy from Widow Twankey, Wishee Washee, their pet panda and a hyperactive washing machine Aladdin is the perfect pantomime adventure for all the family.

Script Extract

TWANKEY Do you know Wishee, sometimes you make me want to throw the towel in.

WISHEE Well don’t do that Mum, that will make the washing pile bigger!

TWANKEY Talking of washing piles, can you bring me that one over there.

(Picks up a basket of underwear)

WISHEE This one here?

TWANKEY That’s the one, that’s my celebrity undies pile.

WISHEE Who’s undies have we got in here Mum?

TWANKEY Well, we’ve got Julie Walters’ bra.

WISHEE Julie Walters’ bra?

TWANKEY Yes, I call it a sheep dog bra. It rounds them up and points them in the right direction! You need that at her age.

(WISHEE pulls some knickers out of the basket)

WISHEE Whose are these?

TWANKEY Ah, they’re Mary Berry’s knickers. Bit of a soggy bottom on those.


(WISHEE throws them back down again, picks up a large pair of boxer shorts with a panel in the back)

And these?

TWANKEY Now, those are Donald Trump’s boxer shorts.

WISHEE How can you tell?

TWANKEY Because, there’s a flap in the back where he talks from.

(WISHEE picks up a final pair of knickers, they’re huge)

WISHEE And these?

TWANKEY Oh, they’re mine. They’re my american pants.

WISHEE American pants?

TWANKEY That’s right. One yank and they’re off!

WISHEE Oh dear.
