Pop sensation Joe McElderry, dressed head to toe in sequins and sparkles, hoisted into the air on a giant, magical looking glass, opens the show with a striking cover of Michael Jackson’s “Man in the Mirror”. And that isn't even the most theatrical moment of the show.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a glittery, golden and sparkling feast for both the eyes and the ears. If you’re not quite feeling the Christmas spirit, the company of the beautiful Snow White, charming Prince Harry of Hull and the hilarious henchmen Cannon and Ball will have you feeling festive in a matter of hours.
As always, Cannon and Ball banter to perfection. The comedy double act have the crowd in absolute stitches throughout, regularly pausing for a breather themselves to suppress the giggles. They cheerfully guide you through the well-known story of Snow White with a terrific pantomime feel.
The breathtaking beauty of the costumes and set design will surely strike you the most. Wicked Queen Sadista, the absolutely perfect panto villain with legs for miles, has an array of stunning wardrobe changes that are just as fabulous as her. Similarly, the six-strong ensemble repeatedly knit the entire production together with their varied roles. From guards to villainous wolves, they are definitely a memorable addition to the show.
Full of fun, laughs and sparkles, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is an absolute must-see for the whole family this Christmas. Running until Sunday 3 January, tickets are priced £17.50-£25.50 and discounts are available. Please call the Box Office on 01482 300300 or book online.
