Snow White: Empire Theatre Consett
Tel: +44 03000 262 400
One of the most loved fairy tales of all time will be retold with a festive twist when a County Durham theatre’s annual pantomime returns. Following a series of sell-out pantomimes, the Empire Theatre and Cinema in Consett is bringing Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to the stage from Saturday 30 November to Tuesday 31 December.
Once again, the Durham County Council venue has teamed up with North East actress and producer Leah Bell for the family production, which combines the magic of a traditional pantomime with well-known pop songs guaranteed to get the audience singing along.
Leah has taken the story of Snow White but given the characters a distinctly northern feel, with Sir Rodney Rotten of Rowlands Gill and Wicked Queen Dolores of Derwentside kidnapping the beautiful Snow White.
She has also added an additional storyline about the town’s toy factory, which is busy making presents for Santa to deliver on Christmas Eve. Naturally, the panto villains are on the naughty list and their treacherous actions prompt toy soldiers from the factory to join the hunt to find Snow White and re-unite her with her beloved, Prince Edmund of Ebchester.
Spectacular effects, dazzling costumes, the year’s biggest pop songs and the hilarious appearance of Snow White’s faithful little friends on a Love Island inspired reality television show, bring the panto bang up to date
