But are they, or will forces of evil stand in the way…? Expect an unbelievable cast, incredible costumes, uncontrollable laughter and song and dance numbers that are nothing short of genie-us!
Clive Rowe said: “I’m incredibly excited to be back at Hackney Empire this festive season for the 16th time, and to be returning to direct and Dame. I can’t wait to get started on Aladdin and to bring our audiences some of the fun, love, and laughter they’ve all been wishing for in 2023!”
