Mirror, Mirror on the wall, whose panto is the cheeriest of them all?

Southport Theatre: Fri 9 – Sat 31 December 2016


Mirror, Mirror on the wall, whose panto is the cheeriest of them all?

Southport Theatre will answer that question when its spectacular Christmas pantomime, Snow White, opens this Friday, 9 December.

The traditional tale of Snow White, familiar to many from the Disney movie, has a special panto style twist with the inclusion of the hilarious Dame Dolly Mixture and Jingles the Jester, loyal friends of Snow White out to thwart the evil plot of the Wicked Queen.

Queen Evilyn is played by Sydney-born Lynne McGranger, recognised world-wide for her portrayal of Irene Roberts in Home and Away, a role she has played since 1993. In 2014 she was runner up on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars. 

Lynne says: “The UK panto experience is always exciting – even though I am working hard and doing two shows a day, it’s also like a holiday. I love being somewhere new, meeting people and making new friends. I am really excited that this year I will be getting to play one of the most iconic fairy tale baddies – it is going to be great fun.”

Providing the face of the Queen’s confidant will be children’s television favourite Justin Fletcher! Justin will be making a special appearance via video projection as the Magic Mirror in a spectacular special effect that will delight all the family*.

The cast is completed by Jason-Marc Williams as Dame Dolly Mixture, Alistair Barron as Jingles the Jester, James Leeman as Prince Michael and Harriet Payne as our heroine Snow White.

This year’s pantomime is once again produced by Imagine Productions and directed by David Janson.

With spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances, and plenty of slapstick fun, the whole Snow White company is looking forward to making Christmas in Southport extra special.

Snow White plays at Southport Theatre from Friday 9 to Saturday 31 December, various performances. 

*Please note that Justin Fletcher appears as a projection in the Magic Mirror and does not appear in person
