Ali Baba flies into New Mills Art Theatre

Ali Baba

Who doesn’t love a good traditional Pantomime and there’s loads to love about New Mills Art Theatre’s production of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves which is showing in February 2024. A folk tale from the Arabian Nights is an unusual choice, but the cast can’t wait to show audiences what a cracking panto it is.  Issac Fletcher-Shaw plays Ali Baba, a young wood cutter, with the heroine of the story Marjana, his loyal and clever friend, played by Jazz Lomas – they save the day!

Christmas celebrations are over and New Year parties too – not much to look forward to?  Oh yes there is! Come to the home of panto and have a good laugh – bring all the family to see this very funny production, full of jokes for all ages.  An absolute must in any panto is an outrageous Dame and we definitely have it in Fatima Fandango, whose poor gofer Mustaffa Screwloose, doesn’t always get it right.  There’s Bashim & Grabbit a couple of bumbling dafties, the beautiful Princess Jasmine and Crown Prince Haroun and Asbad a very nasty dangerous baddie.  Alsatia and Caterina the bad and good immortal spirits battle it out from beginning to the end of the story.  All through the show a strong company of singers and dancers perform songs we all know.

We have three matinees starting at 2.15pm if you want to bring little ones to the panto – Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 February and Saturday 10 February – but book your tickets now as all matinees are always a sell-out.
