The Strathmore Theatre Players' Guild (STPG) will present Snow White, a Pantomime in just a few short weeks.
STPG Producer and Co-Chair Tashina McKenzie says the show will be fun and interactive.
"One of the best things about panto is that it is very memory friendly and it has a ton of audience engagement. So, the story of Snow White is very familiar to everyone but the details change. There are some pop culture references, we encourage the audience to interact with what is going on, on stage."
McKenzie said the show is great for all ages.
"Kids can be kids and adults will get a laugh themselves because the show is full of double-layered humor. The kids will find it funny because it's physical and slapstick. The adults will find it funny because there is nuance."
The play will feature all the traditional characters such as Snow White, the Wicked Witch, the henchman, the Magic Mirror, and the seven dwarves.
"We have a lot of new actors this time around including some children, some young members, and some teens. There are some old faces as well, but if anyone has come to our shows beforehand then they will be able to recognize actors that they have seen many times with a whole lot of new faces."
Snow White, a Pantomime will open Nov. 3 and will run for three weeks at Hope Community Church. There will be evening shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and the first two Sundays.
Tickets are $25 for adults and $20 for seniors and students -- children under six are free.
Tickets can be purchased at the doors, or through the Vault Cultural Collective.
