As Christmas is fast approaching, that only means one thing, pantomime season is just around the corner. A couple of members from the Darwin Escapes marketing team were lucky enough to get a first look at what Birmingham Hippodrome’s much anticipated Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs pantomime is set to offer at the official launch.
The Hippodrome put on a fabulous eerie staging to set the scene perfectly for the casts’ arrival, from deep green lighting, billowing smoke, to spooky onstage props. One by one the cast joined the stage in their dazzling costumes for an informative Q&A session and we were even lucky enough to get an exclusive song performance from Matt Slack, which you will see for yourself at the panto!
This year’s panto has a truly star studded cast, with Birds of Feather’s Lesley Joseph set to amaze and haunt as The Wicked Witch and X Factor competitor and winner, Joe McElderry as the Spirit of the Mirror.
They will also be joined by the panto veteran Matt Slack as Muddles, and from the snippet we saw of his performance, you’ll definitely be in for a treat! Coronation Street’s Faye Brookes will be taking on the role of the beautiful Snow White, whilst YouTube and social media sensation Doreen Tipton will be bringing an abundance of fun and laughter.
And of course, a panto isn’t a panto without a fabulous Dame. Andrew Ryan will be there to wow the audience as Snow White’s dame with his marvellous outfits and comedy.
If the Snow White and Seven Dwarfs pantomime is anything like the sneak peek we saw, you are sure to have night full of laughs and family friendly fun!
Once again we are delighted to be supporting the relaxed performance of the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Wednesday 29th January 2020. The environment the relaxed performances provide allow the whole audience to feel safe, with more space in the auditorium and encourages guests to react to shows as they wish. Certain aspects of the performance are also adapted to suit the relaxed performance feel. It’s so important to make sure the whole family can be involved in theatre events such as a pantomime so they can make and cherish those special memories together.
On that note, we’d love to give one lucky winner the chance to win a family ticket to the Birmingham Hippodrome pantomime Snow White, so they can feel the magic, get in the festive spirit and also see all of these wonderful famous faces take to the stage in true panto style.
So if you want to be in with a chance of winning, just head on over to the Darwin Escapes website here to find out how you can enter our competition to win tickets for the whole family!*
