Snow White Pantomime
Llangollen Pavilion, Abbey Road, Llangollen, Denbigdhire, LL20 8SW
A TV chat show will attempt to heal the rift between Snow White and her evil step-mother as part of this year’s Llangollen Pantomime.
The production of Snow White will bring the fairy tale character to the sofa of The Christopher Cornmil Show, in an episode entitled My Stepmother Tried to Kill Me.
It’s all part of the 35th annual pantomime produced by a cast of 30 young people and adults from the town, taking place at Llangollen Pavilion next month.
The debut director of this year’s production, Justine Bradey, from Cross Lane in Llangollen, said: “The TV sketch at the end of the show is inspired by daytime TV and will add an extra dimension to this year’s production.
“It’s all family friendly and one of a number of twists in the story – our Snow White is a much feistier character than the traditional story and girl power wins the day.
“But it will still feel like a good old-fashioned pantomime with Nanny Nik-Nak as the dame, Prince Rupert in tights and the wicked queen, Evelyn.M/p>
