Masquerade Theatre Company is excited to announce that it is back at the Manoel Theatre this Christmas with the pantomime Charlie and The Chocolate Panto. Written by Malcolm Galea and directed by anthony bezzina, this is going to be a vibrant, hilarious and positively scrumdiddlyumptious homage to the master of children’s storytelling – Roald Dahl.
Charlie and the Chocolate Panto is the story of young Charlie, a penniless young man who lives with his mother in a giant bajtra. Luckily his fortunes change when he finds a coveted golden ticket to visit Willy Wonder’s famous Chocolate Panto along with a group of other winners. Unfortunately everything isn’t quite so splendiferous as he soon discovers that the show’s protagonist, the glamorous Diva Divine, is actually a frightsome witch who wants to turn all the children in the audience into disgusting rodents! Will Charlie and his new friends succeed in exposing Diva for the horrible person that she is and turn her own magic against her? Probably! But they won’t be able to do it without your help.
Charlie and the Chocolate Panto needs an energetic cast to bring the magic, music and mayhem to the stage. The first round of auditions will be held on 20th & 21st July at M Space in Msida. If you think you have what it takes to be a part of the Chocolate Panto, please message or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org for an audition slot. Auditions are open to all 16 years and over. Some of the parts have been pre-cast. Best of luck!
