               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Aladdin however has bigger dreams, where he hopes to make his fortune Evil Abanazar also has a dream, to become the ruler of the universe. He is aware of a lamp that lies deep within a cave and has magical powers. To obtain this lamp the cave must be entered by a person pure of heart. Abanazar hatches a plan to make Aladdin believe he is he's long lost uncle and sends him into the cave.
