This year, rubbing Aladdin's magic lamp might result in three Christmas wishes being granted. For their seasonal panto this December, the Hong Kong Players have decided to stage something not especially seasonal or traditional. Instead, the amateur troupe looks to the Middle East with the story of Aladdin from the book One Thousand and One Nights (or Arabian Nights). This fable will be performed at Shouson Theatre. To fill out the cast they are holding auditions for chorus members. They're specifically looking for young performers aged 11 and up who enjoy singing and dancing. The Players usually require up to 20 kids for their shows. Auditions will be at the Kellett School in Pok Fu Lam on Saturday, June 6.
