However, life is about to change for Aladdin when he meets and falls in love with the beautiful Princess Lychee. To win her hand though, Aladdin must become rich.

Othello | Thurs 3 Oct | 10.30am | £7 [£5.50 when booked before end of June]
A tempestuous journey from scandal and intrigue to lust and vengeance.
Following on from the success of Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet, the highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting new production of Shakespeare’s most tragic tale – Othello: Moor of Venice.
Othello is a legend in his own lifetime, noble, brave, victorious. Honest Iago fuels his venom with malignance and hateful contempt. Poignant, intense, heartbreaking; Othello mercilessly explores every inch of the human condition.
Othello’s world will be brought vividly to life as a live string quartet and a stunning ensemble cast combine with some of literature’s most vibrant language and characters. A dangerous tale of ambition, jealousy and love will unfurl as Shakespeare’s classic tale of deception hurtles to its dramatic and poignant conclusion.
