Report

Author: Keith Scott-Savage

This was a family pantomime with plenty of audience participation,  jollied along by Mark Wilde as an enthusiastic Dame Bric-a-Brac, with a host of corny jokes  and one liners.  Kianna White gave a lovely performance as Snow White, along with a bubbly and likeable Catherine Treanor, as Monday, one of the seven brothers and sisters, each named as a day of the week by their mother Dame Bric-a-Brac.  Matt Stables as Tin Winalot, had the audience laughing at his antics trying to win the hand of the Dame.  Queen Avalanche was played in commanding fashion by Donna Shaw, with Colleen Pratt as Fairy Fabulous.  An admirable portrayal by Rebecca Smith as Miriam the Mirror was a highlight.  Olivia Thompson played the wicked queen`s daughter Snowdonia, with confidence, and together with Chloe Hubbard as Sunday, and Max Wilde as the Prince and Conor O`Hara as the King, kept the whole thing moving along.

Backed by a spirited chorus and a lively dance group,  altogether an enjoyable night at St Nicks.
