“A Pantomime for Grown Ups”





Bristol University's Pantomime Society


Pantomimes? Just for children? Hah! With a classic mix of farce, slapstick and innuendo, some dazzling tunes and - not forgetting - razor sharp wit and satire, what grown-up wouldn't be enticed by the energy, comedy and light-heartedness inherent to Pantomime?

The University of Bristol Pantomime Society presents to you Aladdin. As a fresh take on an old story, it is here to remind adults that the joys of pantomime are not just for the youth. Written and directed by student, Peter Bagot, Aladdin follows the adventures of a young boy as he quests for a magic lamp, seeks the love of a beautiful princess, thwarts the machinations of a devious, deviant sorcerer, and tries to overcome the significant handicap of communicating with a genie who'd much rather be eating sugar-lumps in a barn somewhere. All with a generous sprinkling of glitzy musical numbers, hilarity, not-at-all subtle innuendo, and if you're lucky, a sweet or two.

Bristol's award winning Pantomime Society has been producing fabulous fully original shows and tickling audience funny bones all year round for over two decades. 2011 sees their first venture into the Edinburgh Fringe, and they are keen to entertain and delight with all the traditional elements of pantomime that audiences love, with a unique grown-up twist.

In recent years they have performed and produced everything from traditional fairytales like Sleeping Beauty and Snow White, to more

unusual concepts such as Panto of the Opera and A Midsummer Night's Pantomime.

Aladdin is a guaranteed fast and funny way to immerse yourself in the world of Arabia complete with sorcery, silliness and some spirited singing. If you want to experience something a bit different and are willing to cheer, boo and shout along with us, then we love you and you won't want to be anywhere else this festival season.
