In June and July, Malcolm will be starring in the Adult Panto Snow White at Spazzju Kreattiv. Written and directed by comedian Steve Hili, the show is produced by Ants in Pants and also stars Audrey Scerri, James Ryder, Joe Depasquale, Naomi Said and Rambert Attard.

 

This deliciously dirty production showcases the dark side of Maltese theatre and has become a summer staple. This will be Malcolm's fourth foray playing dame. More information about the Adult Panto can be found here.

Malcolm's hit musical Il-Kbir Għadu Ġej is making a comeback to the Mediterranean Conference Centre in July and August as it's staged once again by Balzunetta Productions. Featuring music from Maltese rock legend Freddie Portelli, the show is directed by Sean Buhagiar with musical direction by Dominic Galea.

Il-Kbir Għadu Ġej was an instant sell-out hit when it was first staged in 2019. This revival will give people who missed it an opportunity to see the show - while giving all those who loved it a chance to catch it again.
