Once again the Lavender Hill Mob Theatre Company has produced another hit show, this time a highly entertaining version of Aladdin with script by Les and Frankie Miles, lyrics by Les, and a catchy score by Tim Rock, who also handled the orchestrations.
The funky choreography in this Corn Exchange show was created by Laura Farr, Alex Nadel and Zoe Adams.
The company was founded in 2001 with only 15 members and has now grown into a thriving group.
What makes The Mob special is it’s welcoming, with members from all walks of life, all ages and abilities.
It can help them to develop their theatrical and life skills, and build confidence.
It is not possible to mention all the principal cast members but standards were high and all performed well in character.
Costumes, sets and special effects were more than adequate and we enjoyed the audience participation items which were most entertaining!
It’s good news to hear Simon Rowe, from KL.FM, is the group’s new patron and we look forward to A Christmas Cracker, the company’s next production, in November.
The organisers always put an original slant on traditional stories and ALL involved in the production are to be congratulated.
