So last night I got to see the Wyvern Theatre Snow White panto production for 2023. And Swindon, you’re in for a treat. The cast and the junior ensemble tell the tale of the princess poisoned by the bite of a Royal Gala with much aplomb. The whole thing is fab fun and as entertaining as it gets. *Most of the usual panto elements are present – there’s cheering and booing and hissing and the ‘he’s behind you’ ghost scene. Not to mention nerf guns – when DID they become a thing? Anyway – they’re clearly an integral part of the performance now.
Swindon’s Wyvern Theatre and Imagine Theatre announce full casting for their upcoming annual family treat. And it’s the fairest panto of them all Snow White from 02 – 31 December.
