Aladdin Jnr – We went to watch the show last weekend and this is most definitely not to be missed. A timeless classic bought back to life. The big kids laughed, the little kids laughed, the Adults laughed too. The magic carpet ride is gearing up to entertain audiences. This fairytale favourite is ready to dazzle both young and old. Along the way you will meet the not so clever but very diligent Genie, who helps our hero overcome the villainous Jafar, and ultimately win the heart and the hand of the Princess Jasmine. | School Times are Mondays to Fridays at 9am and 11am| Saturdays, certain Sundays and Public Holidays at 10.30 and 14.30
