  Athel​​​​​​​​stan Players

  Malmesbury's Dramatic Society

Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves

“Good old fashioned panto fun! I sometimes wonder how panto could have been created in these days of political correctness. It just couldn’t happen now, a product of a bygone age, but praise be that it has survived and continues to thrive! The Athelstan Players annual seasonal treat usually sees it taking place as a curtain raiser to the festive period, but this winter it lit up January’s winter blues …”

“Well done to all the Athelstan Players cast and crew, it was an excellent show! Great performances, funny script, excellent costumes – especially the disguises and the dame. Really looking forward to the next offering.”


“Thank you on behalf of all who attended from 1st Malmesbury Scout group.

Both Cub groups and both Beaver groups thoroughly enjoyed the performances. Well done to everyone involved and thank you.”


Gone but not forgotten. The fact that the studio was flooded (twice) during the performances did not dampen the enthusiasm of the cast and crew, who all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.


Out next panto will revert to our usual time of the last weekend in November. Watch this space for news of our next productions.
