We had a great evening last week, reading the script for Aladdin. We have lots of enthusiasm for this panto and lots of feedback in terms of people wishing to read for certain parts on the August casting evenings (Wednesday 22nd & Wednesday 29th).
I wanted to share with you all the character list, so that you have a chance to consider any parts that you might be interested in. Most of the characters are not gender specific, although we will be restricted within certain age ranges (however we have a wide scope!).
*Nobby (a panda)
*The Emperor (or Empress)
*Genie f the Lamp
*Genie of the Ring
*Chorus as Chinese citizens, Cave Sprites, Palace Attendants, Guards etc.
We are particularly keen to hear from those of you who might be interest in reading for the Villain, Abanazar! Lots of energy, volume and snarls required!!
Quite a few of you have reached out to Wendy and myself to let us know which characters you are interested in for the casting evenings. For those of you who haven’t already spoken to us, please do let us know and we can plan the casting evenings accordingly, or just come and join us when you can. If you would like to see a copy of the script ahead of the August dates, please let us know and we can either email the PDF or send you a hard copy.
See you soon …”oh yes we will!”
Kerry and Wendy
