SYNOPSIS:
In this traditional family pantomime, with a modern twist or two, Princess Snow White joins a cast of colourful characters, including Witchypoo the castle cook, her stupid sons Hoppit and Cliroff, and Trixabelle the fairy godmother.

Can they stop King Elvis’ marriage to the beautiful, but dastardly Queen Arachnida? Can the dwarves – Humpy, Grumpy, Stumpy, Lumpy, Rumpy, Pumpy and Bob – protect the princess? Will Prince Valentino arrive in time to save his one true love from a fate worse than death? This fast paced adventure, with music, song and dance, is fun for all the family!

I just got chatting with Fatima, who runs the castle gift shop, and she was saying that there’s some disturbing rumours about Queen Asbestos. Now I’m not one to gossip, but it turns out she’s been married twice before, and both kings died in mysterious circumstances. All very eyebrow-raising, if you know what I mean.

SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARVES is a hilarious, full-length pantomime by the award-winning playwright Alexander Vail, commissioned in 2004, then revised and updated for a 2015 production.
