Review: Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs

Su simply sparkles in Snow White

There's snow business like Snow White business and it doesn't come much more pantomime showbiz then this - especially when it's in the safe hands of Su Pollard.

Malvern Theatres has pulled out a cracker of a seasonal offering. A turkey it certainly ain't but there's plenty of stuffing in the form of traditional gags, magic moments, colourful costumes and a witty sparkling script with liberal dashes of contemporary - just occasionally racy - humour.

The show gets the booing, hissing, cheering and general raising of roof under way the minute the fun starts and it doesn't let up until the end.

Andrew Agnew proved a versatile comedy performer, ably supported by Shaun Curry, Simon Leigh and Danielle Corlass in the title role.

But the star of the show is Su Pollard and, as the Wicked Queen, she takes the thing and runs with it.
