Bangkok Community Theatre Presents “Aladdin” the Pantomime

After the success of Cinderella in 2014, the Bangkok Community Theatre (BCT) brings their wild and wacky production of “Aladdin” to Bangkok over the first two weekends of December 2016. Don’t miss the traditional British pantomime version of this tale, which promises lots of fun for the whole family. Not only is it ntocked with catchy songs, side splitting jokes, and colourful costumes and sets, there’s an interactive element with lots of audience participation!

For those who aren’t familiar with pantomime, the show has nothing to do with “mime”. Rather, it is a non-stop, fun-packed performance with lots of over the top acting, singing, dancing and comedy. It’s crazy and chaotic, offering a couple of hours of entertainment beloved by the young and young at heart.

Most people know the story of Aladdin as popularized by Disney, and while the heart of the story is the same, the panto version varies in many other ways including its setting in China: Aladdin, a poor village boy dreams of marrying the beautiful princess. Our show tells the same story but adds in audience participation. Also, the Dame, Aladdin’s mother Widow Twankey, is played by a man. Another tradition is to make the pantomime relevant to the time and place of performance, so expect Bangkok references and modern remarks weaved into the story.

The show is directed by Ian Robinson and produced by Suman Tharan and John Wright. There will be 10 public performances taking place at Creative Industries @ M Theatre on Petchaburi Road (between Thonglor and Ekkamai) with the following show times:
  • Friday, 2nd December at 7:30pm
  • Saturday, 3rd December at 2:30pm & 7:30pm
  • Sunday, 4th December at 1:30pm & 6pm
  • Friday, 9nd December at 7:30pm
  • Saturday, 10th December at 2:30pm & 7:30pm
  • Sunday, 11th December at 1:30pm & 6pm

Tickets cost 950 baht per adult, including a drink and a mince pie, with a reduced rate of 700 baht for children under 13 at matinees (which includes the 6pm Sunday shows).

For lots of fun and laughter, gather up your family or a group of friends and make it a date!
