Following the death of her mother, Princess Snow White's father eventually remarries. Unfortunately, he picks a woman who is truly vain and life for Snow White takes a turn for the worse. Meanwhile, the Royal Wizard Barry Trotter tries creating a time-machine and accidentally creates a magic talking-mirror instead. When the Queen learns of this, she asks the Mirror 'who is the fairest in the land'? The Mirror cannot lie and tells her that the fairest in the land is 'Snow White'. This enrages the Queen who plots to have Snow White killed, but the person charged with carrying out the wicked deed can't go through with it and allows Snow White to run away into the forest. The frightened Princess eventually ends up at the home of the seven Dwarf’s, who promise to look after her and keep her safe. But the Queen's wickedness knows no bounds and she tracks the Princess down and tricks her into eating a poisoned apple. Can she be saved?
Charles Dickens’s Scrooge given the panto treatment in this version of ‘A Christmas Carol’. The story is set in Scrooge’s Chocolate Factory and follows the rotten behaviour of Scrooge, towards his downtrodden staff led by reluctant shop-steward Bob Cratchit. It’s Christmas Eve and Scrooge is being his usual miserable self, as he rants at his workers for having putting up Christmas decorations. He threatens them all with the sack, including the factory cook Jan Butty. Two charity workers appear and cause Scrooge to suffer a near-fatal heart attack by asking him for money. And when his kind Nephew Fred invites him to Christmas lunch, his kind offer is curtly dismissed. But strange things begin to happen in the factory and Jan bumps into the ghost of Scrooge’s late partner, Jacob Marley. Scrooge puts her sighting down to too much Christmas sherry, little knowing that he is about to be visited by not one, but three ghosts. After the ghosts show him his past present and future, Scrooge eventually sees the error of his ways and makes an emotional change for the better.
The wicked and greedy Prince John is desperate to become King, but his brother King Richard’s children stand in the way of him and the throne of England. So he orders the nasty Sheriff of Nottingham to have them kidnapped and killed. The Sheriff in turn hires two hopeless baddies to carry out the work and comic ineptitude ensues. The Babes are eventually kidnapped by Riff and Raff, but they can’t go through with killing them and instead abandon them in the woods. But help is at hand in the form of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, assisted by Hayrick and Nursie along with her faithful dog Tyson. There is the traditional comical schoolroom scene, plus a nursery scene with ghouls and a skeleton. Also a funny weightlifting contest and a magic show. A terrific fun-filled panto, with good set-piece gags and plenty of audience participation.
