Sunday 3 June at 10:00 for 10:30 am
Aladdin
Directed by Amanda Dodd

It's Panto time again folks. Who's up for a fun filled magic carpet ride this year?
Characters:

Aladdin - Principal Boy. We are going traditional this year and looking for a strong, cheeky and charismatic lady to take on the role. Big personality, strong vocals and presence are essential. Singing audition needed.
Princess Jasmine - Principal Girl. An independent, driven and aspiring Princess. Warmth, confidence and strong vocals are essential. Singing audition needed.
Widow Twankey - Traditional Dame. Must be able to sing and work the audience.
Wishee Washee - Aladdin's brother. Could be older or younger than Aladdin. Strong comic timing. Singing required. Must be a pair with Not-so-shy.
Abanazar - The baddie.....and boy he's bad! No silly accents. Powerful delivery and presence. Non singing.
Not-so-shy - Handmaiden to Princess Jasmine and eventual girlfriend to Wishee Washee. Small amount of singing required. Jolly hockey sticks character.
Chop and Suey - Rather inept police force. Lots of slap about and movement. Non singing. One girl, one boy. The girl is the Sergeant!
Emperess - Mother to Princess Jasmine. Trying to hold on to traditional values. Very austere....doesn't smile much. Non singing.
Slave of the Ring - She wiggles.....lots, stopping Abanazar in his tracks frequently. Fabulous figure. However, when she opens her mouth it's a different matter! Geordie/Scouse and not very bright or energetic. Think Melanie Sykes in the Boddingtons advert. Non singing.
Genie of the Lamp - Looking for a character here. He could be an Elvis impersonator, could be slightly camp and obsessed with 'bling'....open to ideas. Must move and sing well....at the same time would be a bonus!
Adult chorus: Singing, dancing, energy and pzazz...........need we say more.
Children's chorus: One team only. Maximum of 10 with a mixture of boys, girls and ages.
