The answer, without doubt, is this year’s fun-packed family panto at Middlesbrough Theatre – Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Presented by Extravaganza Productions in association with Middlesbrough Theatre, this spectacular production stars mother and daughter from one of TV’s most popular soaps, playing mother and step-daughter: Deena Payne (Viv Windsor in Emmerdale) stars as the Wicked Queen alongside Adele Silva (Kelly Windsor) as Snow White.
Much-loved local comedy magician John Archer (CBBC’s Help! My Supply Teacher's Magic) makes his Middlesbrough Theatre debut to play Muddles and one of the best dames in the business, Shaun Prendergast, makes a welcome return as Nurse Glucose.
And – Hi Ho! Hi Ho! - seven short actors will be playing the magnificent seven.
There will be dazzling costumes, spellbinding special effects and lots of audience participation that will keep the whole family entertained and amused.
Snow White has skin as white as snow and lips as red as rubies. No wonder the magic mirror declares her to be ‘the fairest of them all’. But not in the view of her wicked stepmother.
Can Snow White escape the clutches of the Wicked Queen?
Will the seven dwarfs come to her rescue?
Can the Prince save the day and ensure a happily ever after?
There’s only one way to find out!
To celebrate the theatre’s 60th anniversary, there are a record 60 performances, running from Friday, December 8 to Sunday, January 14. Child discounts and family tickets are available at all performances.
