Pantomime, or panto, is a popular form of theatre, commonly performed at Christmas. Frequently based on a traditional fairy tale, pantos are family-friendly shows which incorporate comedy, slapstick, song, dance and audience participation.

Hong Kong Players' annual pantomime is always a fun way to lead up to the festive season. The groups has been staging a panto every year since 1961, and this year is no exception: Aladdin will be performed at the Hong Kong Arts Centre, December 4-6 and 10-13.

Rehearsals are well underway, so it's too late to get on stage, but you can still be involved.

Hong Kong Players need a programme design that will appeal to young people, and want to see your ideas. The best design will appear on the front of the programme to be admired by the thousands of people who will see the show, and the winner will receive two pairs of tickets.

The runner-up will appear inside the programme and will also receive tickets.

There are two categories: under 12 and 13-18. The only rule is that it features the show title. The rest is up to you, so get creative and let your imagination soar.

Send your designs to Panto Competition, Young Post, 4/F, Morning Post Centre, 22 Dai Fat Street, Tai Po Industrial Estate, Tai Po, NT, by Friday, October 23.

The winning design will appear in Young Post next month.
