December 1826: Miss Foote as Aladdin, in “Aladdin; or the Wonderful Lamp”, at the Theatre Royal, Queen Street

An advertisement on page two of the Glasgow Herald, on Monday the 25th of December, 1826, informed readers

that the theatre would re-open on Tuesday the 26th, with Miss Foote as Aladdin.


It also provides details of the songs she would sing, and the Musical Farce which concluded the evening’s entertainment.
