Producer Gary Telfer said:  “We’re really looking forward to coming to the wonderfully refurbished Playhouse Whitley Bay for our 2nd year with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which has to be the most magical pantomime of them all. It’s got a great cast of TV stars as well as some amazing local dancers. Our production of Jack and the Beanstalk was a great success last year and this year’s pantomime is going to be even bigger and better! We know how popular the pantomimes are in the North East, so we can’t wait to be back at the Playhouse Whitley Bay this coming Christmas”.

Artistic Director Guy Pascall said: “It’s going to be great fun for all the family both young and old alike. This show will take the original Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story and give it a new twist as only New World Productions can. We’ve got plenty of great comedy routines and some amazing visuals such as a wacky Magic Mirror and the craziest Seven Dwarfs you’ve ever seen! We’re expecting to break all box office records with this Christmas show as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has to be the most popular pantomime of them all.”
