“Mirror, mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all?” is always the question on everyones lips as Snow White and her seven little friends take to the stage.
Snow White has long been a hugely popular fairy tale and this Christmas cracker of a show is a traditional family experience with all the singing, dancing, audience participation, and sparkle you would expect of a classic panto. It delivers boundless fun for both children and adults along with a generous slice of seasonal theatrical glitter.
Panto at it’s best offers a feast of entertainment and this particular show’s journey following the beautiful eponymous heroine’s trials and triumphs, does not disappoint. Especially as everyone has plenty of chances to hiss and boo at the Wicked Queen and cheer with joy as Snow White and her Prince live happily ever after.
