Panto in the Wild West

The Wokingham Paper - - LEISURE -

APOPULAR fairy story is to be trans­ported to the Wild West for a fun makeover. The Rus­sell Play­ers will be pre­sent­ing Snow White and the Mag­nif­i­cent Seven for its postChrist­mas pan­tomime this year.

Run­ning over the first two week­ends in Fe­bru­ary, the fam­ily-friendly show takes the fa­mil­iar and up­dates it for its new lo­ca­tion.

The un­ex­pected rev­e­la­tion that Snow White is ac­tu­ally the fairest on the prairie throws Widow Black­heart, her wicked and ma­nip­u­la­tive step­mother, into a jeal­ous rage. De­ter­mined to seek her re­venge, the Widow plots to re­move Snow White per­ma­nently from her friends and the Happy Ever Af­ter Ranch. Can Snow White and her friends sur­vive the treach­er­ous and evil schemes of Widow Black­heart?

The show in­cludes Tor­nado the talk­ing horse, Silly Billy the Kid and some rather mis­chievous cacti.

It is per­formed on Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 1, Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 2, Fri­day, Fe­bru­ary 8 and Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 9 at 7.30pm, with mati­nees at 2.30pm on the Satur­days.

There is also to be a char­ity per­for­mance in aid of the Me2 Club on Wed­nes­day, Fe­bru­ary 6 from 7.30pm.

Tick­ets cost £10 or £5 for un­der 18s. They can be bought in ad­vance from Swal­low­field Stores or by call­ing 07555 073597.
