A Christmas treat for the whole school. Come on an adventure with us into the fairest panto in the land. A mixing of the nativity message with the fairytale Snow White Riverside Performing Arts presents ‘Snow’s White Christmas.’
Will the Queen manage to stop Snow and her band of seven elves from telling the story of Christmas? Or will Muddles the court jester and someone very special born at Christmas time help save the day? With all the fun and interaction of a traditional pantomime this all age show is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas.
With music, singing, dancing and a sprinkle of snow, make this a special treat not to be missed!
