Snow White The Panto!

About the Play

Snow White is a German fairy tale known across much of Europe and is today one of the most famous fairy tales worldwide. The Brothers Grimm published it in 1812 in the first edition of their collection Grimms’ Fairy Tales. It was titled in German: Sneewittchen (in modern orthography Schneewittchen) and numbered as Tale 53. The Grimms completed their final revision of the story in 1854.

The fairy tale features such elements as the magic mirror, the poisoned apple, the glass coffin, and the characters of the evil queen and the seven dwarfs, who were first given individual names in the Broadway play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1912) and then given different names in Walt Disney’s 1937 film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

The Grimm story, which is commonly referred to as “Snow White”, should not be confused with the story of  “Snow White and Rose Red” (in German “Schneeweißchen und Rosenrot”), another fairy tale collected by the Brothers Grimm.

We’ve, of course, given our version of Snow White the full Panto treatment!  Add a Dame, her layabout son, a couple of bumbling henchmen, and you’ve got enough slapstick comedy, toe-tapping tunes, and lots of innuendo of the ‘nudge-nudge, wink-wink’ variety to keep everyone thoroughly entertained!

Expect the unexpected in this zany and uproariously funny take on the classic tale!
