Snow White and the Seven Dames @ Perth Theatre

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!

Top of the World to the Bottom World-Renowned Mountaineer to Speak in Perth @ Perth Concert Hall

Top of the World to the Bottom  World-Renowned Mountaineer to Speak in Perth @ Perth Concert Hall | Scotland | United Kingdom

Thirty years ago Stephen Venables made history with a new route up Mt Everest, being the first to summit via the gigantic Kangshung Face. And, remarkably, he did it all without supplementary oxygen.

But anxious not to rest on his laurels, Stephen has since turned his attention to the bottom of the world and the icy mountains of the Antarctic Circle, where he has climbed peaks that are just as testing as the loftiest on Earth.

Now he’s sharing these icy exploits at a Royal Scottish Geographical Society (RSGS) Inspiring People talk in Perth.

During the talk, Stephen will recount his marvellous career to date – the highs of climbing Everest, and his new focus on the summits of the south: sailing, skiing, and making first ascents on the remote mountains of Tierra del Fuego, the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia.

And his stories will be right up to date as he has just returned to Scotland after a large-scale expedition to South Georgia:

“It’s a magical island in the vastness of the Southern Ocean. And we approached it by sea as a stunning Pelagic Australis raged overhead.”

But, having recently made home in the Scottish capital, Stephen is becoming increasingly unsure whether such long-range trips are really that necessary:

“Now that I live in Edinburgh and have all the glory of the Highlands right on my own doorstep, I must confess to niggling doubts about the value of these big trips”

Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the RSGS commented:

“The RSGS has played host to many of the great mountaineers of the past 100 years – Eric Shipton, Edmund Hillary and George Mallory to modern-day greats such as Chris Bonington and Leo Holding. It’s a great privilege, therefore, to be once again hosting Stephen in our talks programme and continuing this enviable tradition.

“I hope Stephen’s talk inspires those in attendance to get outside and conquer their own unclimbed summits, however big or small.”

Stephen added: “I always enjoy my speaking tours with the RSGS and will enjoy this one even more, now that it is so close to home”.
