Snow White at Victoria Theatre

After the Magic Mirror declares Snow White to be the fairest in all the land the Wicked Queen is sent into a jealous rage. Will her friends be able to save Snow White from the Queen’s rage and will they all be able to live happily ever after?

Once again, the Victoria Theatre will have all the ingredients for a perfect family panto, with a dastardly villain, a hapless comic and a hilarious panto dame, as well as spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances and bags of slapstick fun!

Neil Hurst is returning to Halifax for his tenth pantomime season, this year as Jingles the Jester and he is being joined by Jolyon Dixon as Dame Dolly Mixture and Felicity Skiera as the Wicked Queen.

Snow White runs at the Victoria Theatre in Halifax, West Yorkshire from Thursday 13 December 2018 until Saturday 5 January 2019.

PLEASE NOTE: Prices vary by date or seating position but Adult and Child tickets are the same price.
