SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS, OFFICIAL MEDIA LAUNCH – SEPTEMBER 2013

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, it’s off to panto-land we go…

The year 2013 hurtles on and, as we welcome in the autumn, the elves are already busily getting to work on Christmas plans at Milton Keynes Theatre.

The “most wonderful time of the year” is only around the corner and with the seasonal merriment comes the wonderful British tradition of pantomime.

 

Snow White cast: Prince Charming (Shaun Dalton), Snow White (Kate Stewart), Wicked Queen (Jennifer Ellison) and Warwick Davis as 'Prof'

I was lucky enough to be invited to Frosts Garden Centre in Woburn Sands for the official media launch of this year’s pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. This was the first chance for the stars to meet, be photographed together in costume and have nosy journalists interview them!

With a cast led by “big”-time actor Warwick Davis, alongside West End and TV favourite Jennifer Ellison and multi-talented entertainer Kev Orkian (who was unfortunately not at the launch as he is currently touring the US), Snow White is set to be a spectacular show when it marches onstage in December.

Milton Keynes Theatre has added an extra week to the run in response to unprecedented demand for tickets – don’t delay, book yours today!

Take a look at these two videos for some footage from the photo-call. They show lots of photographers and reporters stood in the rain, directing the cast for some fabulous shots at Frosts Garden Centre. We did get a few odd looks from their customers though!
