Alassin & The Magic Perfum Bottle

The Wednesday Players proudly presents Alassin & The Magic Perfum Bottle @ The Palace Theatre Westcliff from 12th to the 16th january 2011


Have you ever heard of the Forest of Burzee? I imagine not for it was so long ago that our Great Great Grandfathers could scarcely have heard mention of it! But it was here that a new born babe, all chubby and pink was found by the wood nymph Necile. She so loved the babe and gave him the name ‘Claus’ meaning little one.

THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF SANTA CLAUS is a feel good must see musical for the whole family – especially those who want to recapture the childlike essence of Christmas!

Senmeafella! (The Adult Only Panto)

Each year The Market Theatre Company take a traditional fairy story and distort it almost beyond recognition - packing it with corny jokes, raunchy costumes and blatant sexual innuendo - in the hope of giving the older generation a viable alternative to the family pantomime. Previous stories they’ve corrupted include 'Dick Whittington' (or 'Puss & Dick'), 'Sleeping Beauty' ('Slapper Beauty') and 'Peter Pan' ('Peter Panties and Windy').
Featuring Nick Hooton, Carrie Laurence and Sheena Boyce - who, with the help of various traditional characters (and some not so traditional) will keep you entertained and prolong the all too short seasonal spirit!

"The Ugly Duckling", “Honk!”

Honk! is a musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen story The Ugly Duckling, incorporating a theme of pro-tolerance.

"The Ugly Duckling", “Honk!” tells the story of an odd looking baby duck, Ugly, and his quest to find his mother.

Soon after Ugly is born, he is seduced away by a wily Cat who wants to eat Ugly for dinner. Eventually, Ugly manages to escape but has no idea how to return home.

Along his way, he encounters a beautiful swan, Penny, tangled in a fishing line.

After saving her, the two birds fall in love. However, she must return to her flock and fly south for the winter. Eventually, Ugly’s mother finds him frozen in snow.

Luckily, her warm tears manage to thaw him out and he comes back to life – as a handsome swan! Soon, Ugly is reunited with Penny and two swans decide to live the rest of their days in the same pond as Ugly’s loyal mother.
