Rubbed! Aladdin’s Lamp just got camp

“We’ve been hard at work at the Royal Vauxhall Tavern (RVT), like demented elves in a stolen goods Christmas grotto creating a new adult-only panto for 2018 and this years twisted offering is… Rubbed! Aladdins Lamp just got camp.” Catia Ciarico, Programme Manager and Producer for RVT writes.

Several years have passed from the original ‘Aladdin’ story and Genie is now retired and living in their Lamp in South London, estranged from Aladdin who is leading a playboy life in Monaco with his begrudging Scottish companion, Twanky.

However, evil villain Abenazar is still determined to get his hands on the lamp and Genie’s magic using dirty tricks and camp disguises. With the help of sassy trainee genie; The Spirit of The Ring and her Tragic Carpet, Genie must find Aladdin so he can prove he is the rightful owner of the lamp and foil Abenazar’s scheme.

Will Abenazar evict Genie, does Aladdin mend the error of his ways, will the slave of the ring ever find love and be free and does the tragic carpet actually work? Who knows!

Join us for another helping of RVT panto where magical secrets are revealed, ancient grudges settled, Shirley Bassey impersonations performed and there is more crap magic than a Year 7 talent show. As the true owner of the lamp is chosen, Aladdin and Genie must confront their own feelings for each other and face that fairy-tale taboo – the forbidden love between Master and Slave…

So let us bring some light into your cold winter nights – come and get Rubbed.

‘The jokes come fast and razor sharp like a knife thrower on Red Bull. At times, the wit is so clever, it takes a moment for the laugh, or groan, to come but the pace never lets up and the quick-fire comedy powers ahead.’
