Pantomime returns

TRADITIONAL childrens pantomime have not been seen in Bundaberg for many years, and the Bundaberg Players Incorporated is excited to be bringing this classic form of theatre back to the city when it stages the zany production of Goldilocks and the Three Bears for six performances in December.

This will be a chance for young audience members to engage with the larger-than-life characters and become part of the story, with audiences strongly encouraged to "cheer" the hero and "boo" the villain in true vaudevillian style.

A casting call is announced for any local performers interested in becoming part of this production with an information session being held at the Playhouse Theatre on Wednesday, September 16 at 7.30pm.

Director of production Di Wills is excited there is such an extensive range of great character roles available for males and females of all ages and sizes.

Apart from the title roles of Goldilocks and the three bears, Di is throwing the challenge out to local gentlemen who would be keen to don some glamorous frocks and play the pivotal role of Goldilocks' mother, Sadie Spangle.

In traditional pantomime the "dame" role is played by a man, and this production will be no exception.

Other great roles include Ronnie the Ringmaster, Joey Wizzbang, the fairy godmother Belinda, the villain Benjamin Black, Gypsy Leader Pedro Twoface, and a large supporting ensemble.

If you have a hidden circus skill, this is the show to come along and share as juggling, unicycle riding and cartwheels are all welcome.

The actual audition will be held at the Playhouse Theatre, Steffensen St, on Wednesday, October 7 at 7.30pm.
