Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves – Audition for 5 key roles … plus a Chorus of Citizens of Baghdad, Servants and Thieves
As well as Ali Baba being played by a female (the principal boy role) and Ali Baba’s mum being played by a male (the pantomime dame), there are parts that can be played by either a male or a female. The panto baddie is, of course, Sheikh Mustafa Leikh. Nossah, however, can be played by a female, and one or more of Mum Baba’s friends could be played by a male. The forty thieves can be adults or children, and we want a range of heights, but unfortunately there will not be forty of them – more likely around the 10-12, and we will double cast the children as per our usual practice.
The 5 Roles we are auditioning for are:
- Ali Baba, principal boy (played by a female)
- Mum Baba, the Dame (played by a male)
- Safiya, principal girl
- Sharon, Cassim’s wife
- Yessah, one of Mustafa Leikh’s inept lieutenants
Other roles available:
- Kamil, a camel (2 actors required – front half and back half)
- Ensembles roles – both Adult and Children (limited spaces available)
This show will be a lot of FUN…
