Panto - Aladdin

This year's panto is Aladdin, written by Chris Shinn and directed by Holly Collas and Phil Law.

Evil Abanazar enlists Aladdin's help to get his hands on the magic lamp but things don't go quite to plan for him when Aladdin becomes the Master of a somewhat grumpy Genie. When Wishee Washee tries to be helpful, Abanazar regains the upper hand.

Send for Widow Twankey and the Genie of the ring! But will the Sultan and Sultana want Widow Twankey for an in-law if Aladdin marries Princess Jasmine? I don't think so! Mind you, money talks so just maybe...

For more details see here. For tickets, see here - please note that the Matinee is now sold out and tickets for the other performances going fast, so book now to avoid disappointment!

Spring - Hello, Is There Any Body There?

Our Spring Production is the farce Hello, Is There Any Body There? by Ian Hornby, a murder mystery - but not as we know it - which steadfastly refuses to take itself (or anything else) seriously. Open auditions will be held on Thursday 25th January. For more information about the play see here, but why not also come to the Information Evening on the preceding Monday, 22nd January? Both the Auditions and the Information Evening are at Waterbeach School Hall at 7:30pm.

 

Festivals

WCP's Drama Festival entry this year is The Hiram J Haffenbacker Show, a brand new play by Davis Morris, a satire on the mid-morning chat shows beloved of both British and American TV channels - only without the budgets, the restrained hosts or the witty and sophisticated guests. Open auditions will be held at the same time as those for Hello, Is There Any Body There?. For more information see here, but there'll also be the opportunity to find out more about the play at the Information Evening on the 22nd.

We also have a second entry this year, as part of exciting developments under way. This is also an original play, The Lost Archer by Tim Boden, a light and dark comedy which challenges the preconceptions of an Actor's life. For more information, see here.
