Relaxed performance of ‘Aladdin’

Otterbourne Drama Company

Otterbourne Drama Company will be performing their 40th Pantomime in January 2020 – Aladdin. Other than raising funds to keep the hall in it’s top condition, the thing that keeps all of us volunteers doing it year after year is seeing the smile on peoples faces as they leave after each show. We realise that pantomime, and theatre generally, is a challenging environment for some people – it’s often dark and loud with flashing lights and an expectation to sit quietly and sit still until the interval. But why should people who struggle with the environment be denied the opportunity to laugh and smile? That’s why we are including a relaxed performance of our pantomime this year at 11am on Sunday 12th January. During the relaxed performance the hall will be dimly lit and sound and special effects during the show will be reduced or removed. Refreshments will be available throughout, and the interval will be shortened. There will be a space outside the main hall available at any time for anyone who needs a little break. You are welcome to move around, make a noise, eat, drink etc… during the show! There will be room in the hall if you wish to bring a mat for children to watch from the floor-or for those who wish to get up and dance along! There is also more space for wheelchairs and we are trying our best to get this performance signed in makaton or BSL.

Jump on your magic carpet and join us for our 2020 Family Pantomime – Aladdin. We’ve selected an amazing, modern script, the cast are very excited and our fantastic front of house team look forward to welcoming you!
