Think you know the story of Snow White? then think again

If you think you know the story of Snow White, then think again!

Operatunity celebrates the Christmas season with its biennial pantomime, this year Snow White and 3 ½ Dwarfs. The pantomime has been especially written by Operatunity with their audiences in mind, so if you’re young at heart but not necessarily in body, come along to enjoy some fun!

You may think you know the story of Snow White, but everything will be turned on its head in a tale of confused identities, lost children and singing mirrors. Even Snow White isn't quite what she seems! Soprano Susan Boland will take the role of Snow White, who would talk the hind legs off a donkey, while Bonaventure Allan-Moetaua, Karl Perigo and Kalauni Pouvalu will show off their singing and acting skills as well as their snappy costume changes as they share the remaining roles. Thankfully they will have the talented Grant Winterburn to accompany them on piano, although he does have the odd comment to make! There are plenty of twists and turns that will only be revealed at the show, but the important thing to remember is that amongst all this chaos will be the overriding hilarity and silliness that makes Operatunity pantos so famous, or maybe infamous... So get ready for the silly season with something really silly!
