Traditional panto full of jokes and slapstick. Good comic timing is required and an ability to improvise (even if just in rehearsal) is helpful but not essential. Singing and dancing is needed for all main parts. Rehearsals will be Mon/Weds/Fri/Sun from end of October, with readthroughs/workshops on Mondays (and days tbc) through Sept/Oct. Dancing will be Tuesdays and days tbc
Snow White F Teenage girl, the heroine of our story. Strong-willed, she loves her father but is hated by her stepmother for being very lovely
Dame Flagella M The Dame! She runs the royal household
Hodgit M/F Oddjob person around the castle. Half of the slapstick comedy duo
Bodgit M/F Other half of the slapstick comedy duo
Queen Slytherina F Snow White’s wicked stepmother. Must get everyone booing and be able to banter with the audience
The Mirror M/F Mainly in scenes with the Queen but needs good comic timing and physicality. A sarcastic, world-weary presence.
Prince Kevin M/F The Prince traveling abroad on his gap year
Consort Arnold M/F The Prince’s travelling companion
Chamberlain M The King’s right-hand man and castle boss. Shares comic scenes with Dame
Sheryl F The Chamberlain’s obedient and efficient assistant. Very on-the-ball and attentive to what's going on.
King Copernicus M Snow White’s father, often in a daydream and absent-minded. Not a big role, but needs to show some presence in the second half. No singing.
Jester M The court jester, loons about on stage so needs good physical presence
Frank M The dim, human-size dwarf
Dwarfs M & F Six dwarves, require comic timing and banter
