Arabian adventures with a Bollywood twist come to Guildford this December with our annual ice pantomime!
Spectrum will be transported by a magic carpet this Christmas as the popular pantomime ‘Aladdin’ takes to the ice.
The three day festive ice show will run from 15th to 17th December and will feature performances by some of the region’s rising skating stars.
Aladdin is one of the oldest classic Arabian stories told and has long been one of the most popular of pantomime themes. The story is set in the Far East which provides a stunning visual backdrop for the adventures that unfurl. Our hero, Aladdin, discovers the secret of an old oil lamp and, along with the charismatic genie inside, tries to win the heart of the Princess. However, the path of true love is never easy and he needs to battle against evil to achieve his goal. Add a few comic characters to the drama and there promises to be plenty of action all around!
But what makes our annual pantomime so special is all those who take part in it! It is a real community event, performed entirely by a cast of talented young skaters drawn from Spectrum’s acclaimed skating programme who will re-create all the magic of the orient with flying jumps, dizzying spins and energetic dance routines. Together with colourful costumes and the creative choreography of show co-ordinator Melissa Galvin, this will be a visual extravaganza for all ages.
Still one of the region’s best value Christmas shows, this adaptation of a classic story promises to have all the ingredients of a truly spectacular family treat.
