7.30pm: 11-15th: Octopus presents 'Aladdin'
Christ the King Church Hall, Thornbury

The Octopus Pantomime is Back! Oh yes it is!

Octopus Drama Group is delighted to announce that we will be back treading the boards at Porch House (Christ the King Church Hall) in January 2022.

We will be performing a brand new version of the pantomime favourite, Aladdin.

Written and directed by the multi-talented Alison Bagnall (she also designs and makes the costumes), this will be a bright, colourful, full of fun production set in downtown Peking. Widow Twanky and her two offspring, Aladdin and Wishee Washee, who run The Squee-ki-Clean laundry, will help to ‘wash away’ the winter blues and bring you some ‘comfort’ on a dark Winter’s night.

Of course a panto wouldn’t be a panto without the evil villain and Peter James... Read more >>
