(Abanazar and Aladdin enter SL to the entrance of the cave)

Abanazar: (Give out a loud cackle) We are here Aladdin at last. What a journey! I can’t see the cave anywhere though!

Aladdin: (looking scared) It…it sure was Abanazar. But where is the cave?

Abanazar: I don’t know, can you help us boys and girls? Where is the cave?

(Audience should shout ‘it’s behind you)

Abanazar: behind me oh yes now I can see it.

(Abanazar uses his powers to open the cave)

Abanazar: Aladdin go and get the lamp out of that cave.

(Aladdin goes inside the cave)

Scene 1: The Launderette

Wishee Washee: (Introduces Himself) Hi. I’m Wishee Washee. (Walks to washing machine) I work and live here in the launderette. But my brother Aladdin is more interested in chasing girls than working. Also my Mum is more interested in trying to find herself a husband! That means I have to do all the work around here.

I said- that means I have to do all the work. (Makes an Ahhhhhhhhh sound and raises hands to encourage the audience).

Oh here comes my Mum. You might have seen her wobbling along Bearwood High Street in her pyjamas!

(Widow Twanky enters SR with a huge pile of dirty washing).

Widow Twanky: (Yelling) What are you doing? You lazy old fool. Do I have to do everything around here?

Widow Twanky: (Turns to audience) Would you like to help me with all my hard work since my son is so rubbish and lazy? (Audience replies yes).


I bet you won’t be able to do it. Wishee Washee is utterly hopeless and you lot in the audience tonight look even more dumb than him! I didn’t even think that was possible! You can’t help me, can you?

Wishee Washee: (Encouraging the audience)

Oh yes we can!

Widow Twanky: Oh no you can’t!

Audience: Oh yes we can!

Widow Twanky:  Well help me sort these smelly socks and pants then! (Throws out a pile of smelly pants and socks to the audience).


Aladdin: (Aladdin enters SR) Hi mom.

Widow Twankey: (Shouting) Where have you been Aladdin?

Aladdin: Well I was trying to find a girlfriend.(faces Audience) Actually are there any pretty girls in here? (searches the audience than jumps back in shock)

No definitely not. You lot look terrible!

 (Whispering) Who are these ugly lot mom?

Widow Twankey: Don’t worry I invited them.

Aladdin:  You invited all these people to our launderette?  Well how are they supposed to fit? Oh well you enjoy yourself and I’m off to try to find another girlfriend…

(Aladdin strolls off SL).


This week we will be writing our very own pantomimes.

Here are the links to Aladdin and Cinderella. Have a look and make notes on the main events which happen in each scene. You could also make notes on any jokes you would like to use in your own pantomimes.

Have fun watching and make lots of notes. These will help when writing your own scripts.

Is it that time of the year already? Panto season ! Oh no it is’t Oh yes it is!

This term we are looking at pantomimes in Literacy and Topic.

This is what we have learned so far!


In literacy and topic we are really enjoying learning about pantomimes we have watched some pantomimes. Also we will be performing pantomimes in literacy. We have been researching all about pantomimes, like when was the first pantomime performed. We performed in class to get ready for the performance. We have been doing posters about pantomimes and what kinds of things are in a pantomime. Later on we are going to watch some more pantomimes and will The Grand Theatre to watch a pantomime in Decemer.
