Not too far away from Mr Chu’s China Palace, poor Widow Twankey and her sons Aladdin and Wishy Washy are scrubbing clothes clean to make ends meet.

Aladdin, not keen on hard work, wants to generate a fortune, live the easy life and find love. Hey presto, along comes magician Abanazar with his get rich quick scams.

Will Aladdin successfully summon the spirit of his ring? Will Abanazar get round to rubbing the magic lamp? And what on earth is Wishy Washy up to? There’s only one way to find out.

Middle Child returned to Fruit for the fourth year running with a madcap, musical take on pantomime, starring Hull rapper Nineties Boy, supported by HEY Smile Foundation.
