Limelight Theatre Group’s 2012 Pantomime – Aladdin!

Limelight Productions - Tuesday, February 7th, 2012 at 8:21 AM

We all enjoyed the 2011 production of Cinderella and now Limelight Theatre group is back again with this year’s pantomime, Aladdin.

In this version of Aladdin, the wicked Abanazer  is seeking the magic lamp that contains the all-powerful Genie, so that he can rule the world,  and is just steps away from succeeding! But all  help is not lost as help is at hand! A family posse of wannabe heroes are here to foil Abanazer’s evil scheme! The innocent local lad, Aladdin, his brother, the cheeky Wishee Washee and their fearsome mother, washer-woman Widow Twankey are ready to intervene and save the day!

Throw in a magic carpet, a mystical Spirit of the Ring, the Emperor of China, a beautiful princess and a couple of inept policemen and you have all the  ingredients for a fantastic tale and great entertainment.

“The rehearsals have been dynamic,” producer Paul Cowlard was quoted as saying, “ and it has been amazing to watch the characters develop as the actors grow into their roles.”

Rehearsals are in high gear for the production which is set to go live at the Eileen Parsons Auditorium at the HLSCC on Friday 17th February 2012 at 7pm, with additional performances at 7pm on Saturday, a matinee performance for 2:30pm and a final show at 7pm later Sunday evening.

Packed with songs, slapstick, silliness, audience participation for the whole family and all the fairytale magic of traditional pantomime!
