Auditions for our 2019 Pantomime, Aladdin written by Kei Bailey
It's nearly that time again and we are once again looking for our 2019 pantomime cast. This year we have two audition dates, one for our Dame and the other for the rest of the cast. But first a synopsis of the pantomime and also a character list.
The action is set in the East Peking suburb of Flung-Dung, the Western hills of China and desert plains of Egypt.
Wicked magician Abanazar has ambitions to become the greatest sorcerer of all time and with knowledge of a powerful genie trapped inside an old oil lamp somewhere in a cave in the Western Hills of China, he sets off on a quest to claim it. But first, he must find a young lad known as Aladdin who lives with his mother, Widow Twankey, at their family run laundry in Peking. Aladdin is the chosen one and only he can open the enchanted cave within which the lamp lies.
