Preview: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Sunderland Empire

Hi-ho, Hi-ho – it’s off to
Sunderland we go!

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Sunderland Empire
12 December 20144 January 2015. 

Panto stars promise a truly wicked Christmas in Sunderland as the much loved classic tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs graces the stage from 12 December 20144 January 2015. 

So get set to travel deep into the magical forest on a very special pantomime adventure as we welcome back Martin Dodd for UK Productions, one of the country’s leading producers of musical theatre and pantomime both nationally and internationally, and the company behind the high-flying Peter Pan(2012) and enchanting Cinderella(2013) at the Sunderland Empire.

Panto legend and star of stage and screen Su Pollard will take on the dastardly role of the Wicked Queen, alongside Eastenders and Dancing on Ice star, Matt Lapinskas as the Prince and children’s TV favourite Andrew Agnew (PC Plum - Balamory) as the side-splitting Muddles the Jester. Mamma Mia’s Victoria Serra will play the beautiful Snow White and North East Dame Phillip Meeks will play the delightful Nurse Penny Well.

After an apprenticeship at the Arts Theatre in her home town of Nottingham, Su Pollard made her television debut on Opportunity Knocks, coming second to a singing Jack Russell dog. Undeterred, she went on to become one of the nation's favourite stars, largely through
the role of chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw in Hi-de-Hi! Su’s stage credits are endless; pantomime, musicals or drama – Su has performed in them all, in a varied career which will next see her star as Maiden Marion in the national tour of Ha Ha Hood! and the Prince of Leaves.
