This timeless story of Aladdin and his Wonderful Lamp has been translated and adapted many times since its first publication in 1704. Its continued re-tellings are a testament to the story’s ability to inspire and entertain generations and now, Durban’s own Astrid Productions is bringing to South African theatre stages a revitalized and epic telling of this classic.

The Aladdin creative team comprises Director and Dramaturge Glenn Hayden, Playwright Lakhinandan Boruah, Composer Pranashan Singh, Choreographers Bertwin D’Souza and Shampa GopiKrishna and Disrupt Media, based on an original text by Producer Anjil Naidoo,

In the title roles of Aladdin and Princess Almas are Vash Singh and Yasmin Hankel performing alongside Belinda Henwood, Rowan Bartlett, Darren King, Tshediso Kabulu, Sanele Sibiya, and an ensemble of dancers.

Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp is set to be a unique production of size and quality rarely seen in South Africa. With the inclusion of an original score, riveting choreography and a script that is fun, witty, and heartfelt, it will be a production that no child, adult or theatre lover will want to miss.

Aladdin and His Wonderful Lamp is produced by Astrid Productions and will run at The Globe at Suncoast until October 9, 2022.
