Thanks to the National Operatic and Dramatic Association (NODA) for posting a great review of Snow White.

To save you clicking on the link, this is what it says:-

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 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.

Hey! Don’t miss Snow White!

Tickets for our 2016 pantomime are still available. A family show scripted by our prolific and experienced writing team of Colleen Pratt and Mary Geraghty, Snow White has a traditional story with some interesting twists, and is packed with laughs, slapstick, and great singing and dancing by our enthusiastic mixed cast of adults, teenagers and older children.

Long enough (but not too long) performances are at our usual venue, St Nicholas Church Hall, Allestree Lane, Derby, on January 22nd, 23rd, 29th, 30th and February 5th and 6th, with afternoon matinees on all three Saturdays. Get your tickets now!
