Details:

Guildford Fringe Theatre Company returns with its annual Adult Panto. If you are a fan of naughty, smutty and damn right silly humour then the Guildford Fringe Adult Panto is for you! This year is a naughty reworking of the classic show, Aladdin, and as the title suggests, it is not for kiddies – Oh No It’s Not!

NOTE: This is an adult panto, for over 18s only, and you must be comfortable with the use of rude and crude language. No material is written with the intention of causing offence, the intention is purely to make our audiences laugh!

The overall style for the music in the show is commercial pop/contemporary musical theatre so please can audition song choices reflect this.

 

Casting breakdown:

We are looking for a diverse cast of performers to make up the company of Cinderella.

 

Aladdin

Aladdin only appears to have one goal in life, and that is to become the world’s greatest wanker. So much so that he has managed to build up the strength in one arm to be considerably stronger than the other. Not the sharpest tool in the box more of a silly-billy type, and certainly not a ladies’ man and not smooth when it comes to the opposite sex.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.

Playing age: 20-30 years

Height: Any

Gender: Male

Appearance: Any

 

Princess Jism

Daughter of King Seamen, and long suffering of her father’s overprotective nature. Has been forced to wear a chastity belt, though this does not prevent her from indulging as much as she can with either sex, and is known to hold many debauched parties at the palace, out of sight of her father and under the guise of ‘Bible Study’ classes. Desperately wants to be freed of the chastity. A strong, intelligent and confident character, who is no fool.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.

Playing age: 20-30 years

Height: Any

Gender: Female

Appearance: Any

 

Widow Wankey

Aladdin’s widowed mother and owner of the Wankey Laundry. Larger than life panto dame, who is quick of wit, takes no prisoners, but equally playful with the audience and takes every opportunity to show just how fabulous she is.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.

Playing age: Any

Height: Any

Gender: Male

Appearance: Any

 

Abanzar

Egotistical, maniacal villain who pompously believes that he is the only solution to restoring law and order to the world. Also believes he is impossibly attractive to all women and takes every opportunity to flirt with the ladies in the audience. He is also impatient, and quick tempered and does not like being answered back or laughed at. Has spent years searching for the holy ring piece of St. Crispin the Unwashed and believes with it he will have the power to rule the world.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.

Playing age: 20-50 years

Height: Any

Gender: Any

Appearance: Any

 

Karen, Spirit of the Ringpiece (Doubled with Genie)

Karen used to be a powerful fairy but was trapped inside the holy ring piece of St. Crispin the Unwashed, and has since lost a lot of magical abilities. Not a pushover, although Abanazar tries to control her, and can be quite sarcastic. Once the magic lump is rubbed we discover that Karen has in fact become the Genie and her powers have been restored, though we don’t learn this as audience until the very end. Use of accent to distinguish between the two characters would be useful.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.

Playing age: 20-30 years

Height: Any

Gender: Female

Appearance: Any

 

Genie of the Lump (Doubled with Karen, Spirit)

All powerful and commanding Genie of the lump. Has the power to grant wishes, though is playful and takes liberties when delivering. Later revealed to be Karen who has been restored to full strength. Use of accent to distinguish between the two characters would be useful.

Great audience rapport and comedy timing. Great musical theatre/pop voice and movement skills.
