Our CTCers have been getting into character, ad-libbing, improvising and learning the lines they have written, all in preparation for our first ever community run pantomime – Aladdin! Expect original CTC set design, CTC–created bright and bold costumes from materials that bring a near-east flavour, CTC sound effects and the inimitable humour that sums up the fun and spirit of the CTC community which they have injected into the script, with original jokes, dancing and song!
Amongst our CTC ranks we have so many skills and so much experience to help make it happen; already we have found former sound engineers, a foley artist, a set designer and a model maker. Not to mention lots of budding actors and stage hands all lending a helping hand to make the dream a reality!
It will be staged at the Winter Warmer Saturday Club on Saturday 19 December, our last Saturday club of the year! There will be ample opportunity for you to get involved as a member of the audience, adding your boos, hisses and encouragement to spur on our actors who will transport you to the land of magic lamps and magic carpets! It should be a real hoot to spot familiar faces transformed in their roles and disguised behind their stage make-up!
If you would like to get involved, let Laura or Simone know. And if you would like to come along and watch you will need to book your place at our next CTC Saturday Club (2 time credits).
So come along and see our Aladdin, Genie, Princess Jasmine, Wishy-Washy, Widow Twankie, ‘Av A Banana!, The Emperor, and the evil sorcerer, Jafar, battle it out in this heart-warming and funny tale and end the year with a sparkle!
