Aladdin and his Magic Smart Watch – Leichhardt Centre Miles

10 Nov 2023, 10am to 11am

Aladdin was sick and tired of his boring old lamp, so he traded it for a brand-new Smart Watch!

The Smart Watch was great, but it came with a very strange Genie who was always getting things wrong. Aladdin wished for a really big HOUSE and got a really big MOUSE…What the?!

His Mum wasn’t happy either. Aladdin hasn’t been doing his homework, or his chores. He has become very lazy! Aladdin plans to make the Genie do all the jobs he doesn’t want to do…including his homework!

Be careful what you wish for Aladdin!

Join us for a humorous tale of wishes-gone-wrong and lessons learned in Jally Entertainment’s lively twist on a classic!
