Christmas Pantomime: Snow White and the Seventh Dwarf

Runs for three weeks in December (5th – 24th) Monday – Saturday at 1pm.

We are now running an extra 3pm performance on the following days:

Friday 9th
Saturday 10th
Wednesday 14th
Friday 16th
Saturday 17th
Wednesday 21st
Thursday 22nd
Friday 23rd
Saturday 24th

The little-known – indeed, buried – story of a Pantomime Princess’s forbidden relationship with a Person of Shortness. The other Dwarves – Whiffy, Jakey, Junkey, Spikey, Fart and Stupid, – are conveniently out of the cabin (budget issues) when Snow-White unburdens herself to Chookie, the Seventh Dwarf.  It turns out she is dreading having to be rescued by a Prince: from what she knows of Princes, they’re spoilt brats who would make rubbish husbands. She is warming to the charms of the wee man, who loves to work - a relationship The Media have kept under wraps for decades – nay, centuries. (Although you don’t have to say “nay” – it’s a Pantomime word)

In the meantime, Dark Forces are Abroad. That’s all you need to know – Dark Forces!  Abroad!

Will Snow-White be rescued by a Handsome Prince? Killed by a Wicked Queen (is there any other kind?) or live happily ever after in a taboo relationship with the love of her life – who may or may not be a Person of Shortness?

    Hi – Just wondered if this is an adult play?

    Hi Glen. The Panto is written with our usual adult audience in mind and contains some language which some parents might not think suitable for their children. Hope this has been helpful.

    First time at this type of event and loved it. Brought my husband as we rarely get to act like big kids and that’s what the show is all about. Reliving childhood pantos but with a XXX status…

    The characters were very good and we laughed almost constantly throughout at the tongue in cheek humour. I commented to my husband on the way out that it’s not surprising that there were almost 400 of an audience. You could see that the cast were having such a good time, it was so evident on the stage you couldnt help feeling it too. Well done everyone and Merry Christmas…. X
