SINCE THE 1700s, when a Syrian storyteller told the tale of Aladdin and His Magic Lamp to French writer Antoine Galland, the story has enchanted and delighted generations the world over.
The story has become part of The Thousand and One Nights and has been made into films, storybooks, animations, and stage shows. The latest is Aladdin which takes place in the University Concert Hall, Limerick, from Friday December 20 to Sunday January 5.
MAKING A welcome return to the Town Hall Theatre, after a sell out performance last year, is eminent British actor, Clive Francis, with his superb one-man adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol.
Francis brilliantly performs this festive masterpiece while playing every notable character in the story in a haunting, moving, and wonderfully entertaining performance which The Irish Times described as “fresh, ingenious and enthralling”.
