The Gaiety Theatre recently saw the opening night of the Arabian tale of Aladdin and following a successful date in the Gaiety last month, I didn’t have to hesitate to add one of the theatre’s musical productions to my 12 Dates of Crimbo series.
I don’t know about you, but I truly believe that one can never outgrow Disney and this year’s Gaiety Panto is one that is all about magic and embracing the inner child lurking in us all.
The Gaiety’s Aladdin is said to offer ‘magic wishes and dastardly dealings’ while promising to ‘excite and delight all ages with the extra helping of song, dance, slapstick and laughter.’
As you may or may not know, The Gaiety has hosted the annual Christmas Panto every year since 1873. Located on South King Street in Dublin, it is right and across from St. Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre and sports bar, Sinnotts.
