Watch: “This year’s Dame is even cheekier” – Alan Montanaro is back

For this week’s episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg interviews the great Alan Montanaro who is back as Dame in the MADC’s panto.

Joining Montanaro on stage in the stellar production will be a cast of more than 30 actors and dancers, including Stephen Oliver, John Montanaro, Alexander Gatesy Lewis, Jasmine Farrugia, Noel Zarb, Joseph Pavia, Karl Bartolo and Matthew Manfre. While fellow panto stalwart – and former Dame – Michael Mangion will be directing, the show will be choreographed by Francesco Nicodeme, with musical director Ryan Abela, and lavish costumes designed by Isabel Warrington.

MADC’s Aladdin will be performed at the MFCC, Ta’ Qali on the 23rd, 26th, 27th, 28th, 29th, 30th December 2019 and 3rd and 4th January 2020 at 7.30 pm, with matinee performances at 3.00 pm on the 26th, 28th, 29th December 2019 and 4th January 2020.
