(Pic Val Adamson: Lyle Buxton and Georgina Mabbett as Prince Valiant and Snow White )

Kickstart’s final production for the year is another heart-warming, family pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

This charming and magical adventure for all ages promises to provide the entire family with quality holiday entertainment over the Festive Season, with mysterious mirrors, dancing dwarfs, dazzling sets and costumes, familiar songs, witty jokes, slap-stick and sing-alongs that will live in audiences minds long after the curtain has come down.

This brand new and expanded version of KickstArt’s much smaller 2006 production presented at the tiny Kwasuka Theatre stars Georgina Mabbett as Snow White, and Lyle Buxton as her handsome Prince Valiant. Peter Court dons outrageous wigs and outsize lashes to play the hysterically wicked dame, Queen Malicia, while Bryan Hiles, Belinda Henwood and Bandile Hlope provide the hilarious knock-about comedy team of Tom Trueshot, Polly Pumpkinseed and Zanzibar Jack.

The show is presented by the same award-winning team responsible for Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood, Aladdin, The Wizard of Oz and Cinderella: written and directed by Steven Stead, designed by Greg King, with musical direction by Evan Roberts and lighting by Tina le Roux.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves runs at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from December 6 to January 9 with performances from Tuesdays to Sundays at 14h30 and evening performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 19h00. Tickets R130 (R100 pensioners and children under 12) booked at Computicket.

There is one low price preview on December 6 at 19h00 with tickets at R100 (R80 pensioners and children under 12). There will be no performances on Christmas Day, Boxing Day or New Year’s Day
