Cast announced for Durham Gala pantomime
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
22 November 2018 – 5 January 2019
Temperatures are set to soar this week but staff at the Gala Theatre are already thinking about Christmas.
Tickets for the 2018 pantomime are now on sale and this year it’s a family favourite, with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the theatre from the 22 November. Following the success of last year’s show Robinson Crusoe, which was seen by over 31,000 people, the production will be written and directed by Neil Armstrong and Paul Hartley for the fourth year running.
“I know it’s only June but we are already well on the way with this year’s pantomime and can’t wait to get into rehearsals in the autumn,” said Neil, who plays evil Rupert Von Rottenchops. “Snow White is a much-loved classic but as usual we’ve added our own twist to keep audiences guessing and we’re confident we’ve got another success on our hands. Once again we’ve got a great cast lined up for this year and we look forward to welcoming back the Durham audiences in just a few months’ time!”
The story follows villagers in Fairyhill, where Rupert Von Rottenchops and his henchman Corporal Crosby (Pip Chamberlain) plan to cause chaos in the town and take all of the residents’ money.
Will Snow White (Lauren Waine), Chester the Jester (Paul Hartley) and their mam Dame Dolly Doodle (Paul Dunn) be able to stop the plan with the help of their seven little friends?
