REVIEW: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs @ Empire Theatre and Cinema, Consett

Posted on December 2nd 2019 by Whats on Northeast

Review by Lucy Wearne

A great family experience with 2.5 hours of laughs from the start of the performance to the end.  This well-known fairy tale is retold with a festive, North East twist featuring Sir Rodney Rotten of Rowlands Gill and Wicked Queen Dolores of Derwentside as well as Snow White and 7 dwarves.

The story begins with the town’s toy factory, which is busy making presents for Santa to deliver on Christmas Eve. Naturally, the panto villains are on the naughty list while the key storyline is to help reunite Snow White with her beloved, Prince Edmund of Ebchester.

There is something for people of all ages with an indoor snow ball fight and snow for the kids, well known pop songs to get everyone singing along and of course a few innuendos thrown in for the grownups.  Spectacular effects, dazzling costumes and a great atmosphere make this one of the area’s not to be missed pantos.  The performances run from Saturday 30 November to Tuesday 31 December.
