First time we’ve seen snow as panto classic takes stage

Snow White
Snow White

One of the most beloved fairy tales of all time is given the pantomime treatment and will be staged by a drama group later this month.

Wycliffe Drama Group will be putting on the ever popular Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Lutterworth College.

It will run from January 21 to 23.

The pantomime follows the traditional story of Snow White escaping from her wicked stepmother and being befriended by seven kindly dwarfs before being whisked off by her dashing prince.

In the version put together by Wycliffe Drama Group, the dwarfs have all manner of quirky characteristics and get up to hilarious antics which will live long in the memory, while the principal comedians get themselves into all kinds of slapstick mess.

The cast includes Lois Hunt as Snow White, Dickie Wood as Sarah the cook and Lauren Crooks as the wicked queen.

The pantomime is written and directed by Richard Hill, produced by Dawn Crooks, with Alison Woodward as musical director.

WDG last staged this pantomime 10 years ago when it won the award for the region’s best pantomime.

Since then the script has been updated so audiences can expect further top-class entertainment from a well-seasoned bunch of pantomime performers.

As the show sold-out early last time it was performed, people are advised to get their tickets early to avoid disappointment.

The performances start at 7.30pm each night of the show’s three days. There will be a Saturday matinee starting at 2.30pm.

Tickets are £10 for adults and £8 for concessions. There are family tickets available with entrance for four people costing £30 and £35 for a family of five.

These can be obtained from Aspect stationers in Church Street, Lutterworth, or by phoning the box office on 07913 880663.
