KCS Production Aladdin Registrations

Kalamunda Christian School is excited about presenting our 2019 production Aladdin Trouble, a panto style musical involving Year 3-6 students. All of the essential pantomime ingredients are included: the kind-hearted hero, the go-getting princess, the evil villain and the wonderfully comic pantomime dame, with plenty of opportunities for you, the audience, to participate with a boo, a hiss or a hooray!

Selection Criteria

Once registered, all students will participate in weekly tryouts on Thursday afternoons from Weeks 3 – 4 of Term 1 (14 - 21 February).

Entry into the production is through an audition process. When casting, roles will be given based on student’s behaviour and participation during tryouts and auditions. The following criteria will be considered during the audition process:

  • Vocal skills – including projection, clarity, timing, pace, tone and dynamics
  • Realisation of a coherent theatrical performance – including the presentation of the chosen material
  • Physical skills – including control, energy, spatial awareness
  • Presenting/sustaining character – clarity in presentation, belief, conviction, energy, complexity

These auditions, whilst focusing in part on such attributes as vocal and physical skills, also put a large emphasis on teamwork and collaborative skills (which are essential tools for all students throughout their school life and beyond).

Those students who are successful in the auditions would be expected to commit for the remainder of the school year. Weekly rehearsals will be held in the school gymnasium on Thursdays (3:15pm – 4:30pm).

Further enquiries relating to the production should be directed to Mrs Kate Rimmer (kate.rimmer@kalamundacs.wa.edu.au).

About Aladdin Trouble

Welcome to the exciting world of 1001 Arabian Nights, where the marvellous, panto-tastic Aladdin Trouble is set!

Scheherazade, our storyteller, launches us into a tale of good versus evil, a magical lamp, three wishes, witty banter and buffoonery and, of course, love conquering all. Aladdin Trouble features all of your favourite characters including the beautiful Princess Jasmine, the wicked Abanazar, the hilarious Widow Twankey and the fabulous Genie - and plenty more besides.

With a brilliant modern take on the original Aladdin script and 11 incredibly catchy songs, Aladdin Trouble will make you boo, hiss, laugh and cheer along to this rip-roaring musical, from the incredible writing team who brought you Cinderella & Rockerfella.

This is a musical not to be missed!
