2009 Pantomime


Many years ago, the wicked sorcerer Abanaza happened upon a magic ring which contained a Genie – a Genie who offered to grant him three wishes. He was greedy and thoughtless and wasted his wishes on material things that didn’t last. With the rings powers depleted (or so he thought) Abanaza and his long-suffering side-kick Won Ton travelled the word in search of a fabled magic lamp. Legend told that inside the lamp a Genie with even greater power dwelt. This Genie was capable of granting its master an unlimited number of wishes.

Finally, their travels and studies of the mystic arts pay off and they learn of the Lamp’s location – far away in Peking City where, coincidently, the only one who can retrieve the lamp from the murky depths also resides. Untold wealth and power is at last within Abanaza’s sights. (Hiss, Boo!)
