Wycliffe Drama Group presents
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Wycliffe Drama Group’s annual panto was, as we all expected, packed with terrible old corny jokes and happy songs to sing along with. It had an all-singing, all-dancing chorus of 18, of all ages, from the four cute tiny rabbits, (aaah), to the mature members. It had the prettiest Snow White I’ve seen in years (Lois Hunt), and she sure could put a song across. We were expecting “Someday my prince will come” and got the rocking “You’re the one that I want”, from “Grease”, with her Prince (Jenny Simpson). Dickie Wood was Sarah, the Dame with the most jokes ever, and her son Jack was the lively and funny Andrew Spencer. Their wallpapering slapstick scene had the small children behind me screaming in delight! The evil Queen (Lauren Crooks) cackled for England and Richard Holyoak was her delightfully dotty King. There was even a lovely dancing cow, Daisy.

However, the stars of the show were definitely the Seven Not So Tiny Dwarfs. Each was a real individual. They had the best songs and the daftest routines (getting changed for bed was hilarious). Dopey (Morgan Smith) stood out, as he has to, and his mirror routine with the Queen was very clever. Oh, and why were they not dwarfs? (Apart from the fact that Equity couldn’t supply them, of course). They did some baking and all got covered in (wait for it) …..”Elf Raising Flour”.

WDG gave us a really fun evening, congratulations to all, especially to Producer Dawn Crooks and Director Richard Hill.
