Snow White at Victoria Theatre

Posted on Updated on

After the Magic Mirror declares Snow White to be the fairest in all the land the Wicked Queen is sent into a jealous rage. Will her friends be able to save Snow White from the Queen’s rage and will they all be able to live happily ever after?

Once again, the Victoria Theatre will have all the ingredients for a perfect family panto, with a dastardly villain, a hapless comic and a hilarious panto dame, as well as spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances and bags of slapstick fun!

Neil Hurst is returning to Halifax for his tenth pantomime season, this year as Jingles the Jester and he is being joined by Jolyon Dixon as Dame Dolly Mixture and Felicity Skiera as the Wicked Queen.

Snow White runs at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax, West Yorkshire from Thursday 13 December 2018 until Saturday 5 January 2019.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices vary by date or seating position but Adult and Child tickets are the same price.

Did you know Victoria Theatre also offers an integrated signed performance and a relaxed performance of Snow White.

Snow White Integrated Signed Performance, Saturday 29 December, 5:30pm & Sunday 30 December, 1:00pm.

For this integrated performance, the British Sign Language (BSL) interpreters will be involved in the action on stage and take part in the performances!

Snow White Relaxed Performance, Friday 4 January, 10:30am

This performance is designed to be welcoming to everyone, and especially to adults and children who may feel unable to access theatre performances for a variety of reasons, for example: parents/carers with noisy infants, people who need or want to move around and/or vocalise during the performance, people with dementia, autism or with other complex access and inclusion needs.

They must elect leaders, write anthems, come up with rules and deal with all sorts of crises because running the world isn’t all fun, fun, fun – there’s stuff to be done as well.

This is a seated show and will take place this Christmas in the circus-style Spiegeltent – a spectacular round wooden structure from the Netherlands measuring 20 meters in diameter, lavishly decorated inside with mirrors, glass and velvet.

Tickets, Adult £11, Children £8.50 are available from the Piece Hall website.
