Based on the traditional tale of love, loss and a poisonous apple, the show included cowboys, hobby horses and a beauty pageant.

Michelle Stonley starred as Snow White, with newcomer Penny Thompson as handsome gold prospector Bill Wideleg.

Jonny Staley took to the stage as good Sheriff Big Dick Pickett, married to the evil Eliza Black, played by Michelle Emptage.

The seven dwarfs were replaced with seven cowboys, who stunned crowds with their rendition of YMCA.
