THE cast of a Christmas pantomime with a twist are getting ready for audiences in the North-East.

Snow White 2: Appley Ever After is being performed at The Stand comedy club, on High Bridge, in Newcastle.

It is designed to be a sequel to the classic fairytale with modern messages for a 21st century audience.

Hannah Walker plays Snow White with Katherine Tanney as the wicked queen and Lee Kyle as Muddles while Sammy Dobson is ‘the rudest woman in the world’.

Hal Branson, who plays the prince, said: “It’s a show for everyone, even people who don’t like pantomime, it’s a big, daft, silly mess of a show with the stuff you’d expect and loads of things you won’t.

“When we last met Snow White, she was marrying a handsome Prince. Well, unfortunately it didn’t work out.

“Never one to let things get her down, she still has a heart full of hope and head full of songs. It’s a classic pantomime with an alternative edge.

“It’s like nothing you’ve seen before at a price that means you can afford to bring the family.”

It runs from December 17 to 23 and 27 to 30. Tickets cost £5. To book call 0191-232-0707.
