He’s behind you! We take a look back at a performance of Aladdin at St Matthew’s School in Ipswich.
Aladdin is an ancient tale set in the Middle East of a peasant boy who finds a genie in a lamp.
In the pantomime version of the story, Widow Twankey - a lady who runs a laundrette - is Aladdin's mother.
