Enter our competition to win a double ticket for the opening night performance!

Another year comes and goes and before we know it, pantomime season is upon us again! This year, the Geneva Amateur Operatic Society has chosen to perform a lively and colorful rendition of "Puss in Boots" at the Théâtre du Léman in Geneva from 2-4 December 2016.

For those of you who have forgotten the story, here is a quick reminder: In his father’s will, Jack has been left penniless, inheriting nothing but the family cat. Although he has great ambitions, the prospects are not good! Things soon change with the arrival of his Auntie Hettie, etiquette expert extraordinaire, and the revelation that Puss can talk (and looks pretty fetching in a pair of boots)! Before long, Jack, Auntie and Puss are embroiled in a complex scheme to persuade the King and Queen that Jack (masquerading as the Marquis of Carabas) is suitable husband material for the beautiful Princess. But first they will have to contend with a jealous noble suitor, a pair of dastardly henchmen, and a hideous shape-shifting Ogre!

According to those involved in this year's hilarious production, Puss in Boots is packed with laughs for both adults and children, as well as catchy music, dancing and a live band!
