Ongoing Christmas shows and pantomimes



Cinderella by MADC at Malta Fairs and Conventions Centre, Ta’Qali, is on until tomorrow.

Penned by Malta’s most popular comic actor Marylu Coppini and directed by Chris  Gatt, this year’s pantomime has not one but two dames: Jean Pierre Busuttil and Michael Mangion.

Isabel Warrington is the stepmother Baroness Kifuża lording over super hen-pecked Baron Flooseless Renato Dimech and his lovely daughter Cinderella played by Rachael Tedesco Triccas.

Sandie von Brockdorff is the thigh slapping Prince and Francesca Briffa waves her magic wand as the Fairy Godmother making sure that every transformation of working clothes to ballroom gown and pumpkin to carriage works like a treat… or perhaps not.

With Paul Abela once more waving his musical baton, Roger Tirazona polishes up the chorus and choreographer Francesco Nicodeme makes sure that everything looks better by leaps and bounds.

Set designer Aldo Moretti along with Claudio and Jason Apap transform the MFCC into a toy theatre and Audrick Plum is in charge of flying Cinderella to the moon and back.

Performance dates:

Tomorrow at 3pm and 7.30pm.

The Comedy Knights are back with their new show, Comedy Knights: 5how Me The Funny! at the Salesian Theatre, Sliema, until Sunday.

The show offers more manic mayhem, giving the audience a rundown of the good and the bad of 2017 .

Chris Dingli, Marc Cabourdin, Jo Caruana, Pia Zammit, Colin Fitz, Thomas Camilleri, Chantelle Micallef Grimaud and Steve Hili bring to life a whole host of characters from audience favourites like the The Balluta Boys, The First Lady and the Sliema Girls, to brand new characters who are guaranteed to make you laugh your socks off.

“2017 has been quite a year, with snap elections, new political leaders, surplus budgets, scandals and spies and Kim Jong Un-style Celine Dion tributes” says director Wesley Ellul.

This year’s show, once again, promises to be bigger and funnier than last year’s, with writers including Chris Dingli, Steve Hili and some special guests cooking up some special treats.

Performance dates:
