Fancy booing some baddies and cheering on the good guys? Then get down to the Ripple Centre this week to watch pantomime Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves.

The show is being staged by Barking Music and Drama following its previous success with pantomimes and classic performances of Robin Hood and Oliver!

The group will be putting a slightly different spin on the Ali Baba story during its shows which run from tomorrow (Thurs) until Saturday at the Barking venue in Ripple Road.

Darryl Kane, the group’s technical director, said: “We’re really looking forward to it, it’s been a really long rehearsal period, but it will be good to get it on stage and show it to the public.”

The theatre company have a new choreographer, Christie Galvin-Law, for the show.
