Aladdin - Relaxed Performance

The most mystical pantomime of all time, Aladdin, flies in on a magic carpet to the Sunderland Empire for Christmas 2022, with a sparkling cast!

From the streets of Chester to the city of Sunderland, Hollyaoks’ Gary Lucy is set to stir up a storm as the villainous Abanazar, in this year’s pantomime spectacular.

Alongside, North East Queen of Comedy, the fabulous Miss Rory (Boulevard) as Widow Twankey and hilarious local comic Tom Whalley as Wishee Washee,

Filled with mystical adventure, stunning sets and costumes, a lamp load of comedy and sensational song and dance numbers – join us on magical carpet ride with Aladdin this festive season.

Cast subject to change.

If you have learning or sensory disabilities, or care for someone who does, you’ll understand how difficult it would be to attend a regular theatre performance.

With lighting effects, loud noises and large crowds, stage shows can seem really overwhelming. At the Sunderland Empire, we believe everyone should be able to experience the magic of theatre.

Relaxed Performances provide the exact same production as a typical audience would enjoy, with an atmosphere and attitude in the auditorium that makes everyone feel safe and comfortable.

They are primarily designed for patrons who may be concerned about attending a theatrical performance or may find visiting the theatre daunting. They are informal performances that are designed to benefit patrons with additional needs, such as autism, ADHD, dementia, younger children or anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed environment.

Slight alterations are made to the performance, though the overall content will not change:

- Technical adjustments are made to lighting and sound. House lights are normally left on low and strobe lighting may be removed. Loud noises or explosions are either taken out entirely or reduced.

- Audience members are free to go in and out as needed, and late comers rules are relaxed.

- Making noise during the performance will not be discouraged.

- Staff are available to assist as required and quiet areas are provided for anyone who may become overwhelmed by the performance.

- Visual stories can be sent to audiences in advance.

- Pre-show familiarisation visits can be arranged.

Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone of what is now the Sunderland Empire on 29 September 1906 and took to the stage on 1 July 1907 to officially declare the theatre open. Masterminded by two of the contemporary heads of British theatre, Edward Moss and Oswald Stoll, the Sunderland Empire Theatre has undergone many changes since it opened but remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue.
