Snow White and the Seven Dames @ Perth Theatre
Dec 12 @ 10:30 am
Snow White and the Seven Dames @ Perth Theatre

Directed by Lu Kemp
Co-director Barrie Hunter

Snow White never asked to be beautiful. She never asked to be given a name that reduces her to her perfect complexion. It’s particularly embarrassing now that she has a bout of acne…

Since her father married that awful witch, she spends hours alone in her room. When her evil stepmother makes her first attempt on Snow White’s life, Snow White decides it’s time for a change. She’s going undercover and in disguise: Snow White, no more! But she still must save her father and regain her kingdom. And all this, while aided and abetted by not one but seven dames who have decided they are taking young Snow White under their bat-wings.

Whistle up your best booing, hissing and singing voices and help Snow White and friends live happily ever after in Perth Theatre’s dame-tastic family panto!
