Mirror mirror on the wall, who has the farest panto of them all!
It’s panto time again at the hippodrome and this time it’s the turn of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs! We’ve been going to panto for a good few years now and I hadn’t seen Snow White before, so I was excited to see this classic brought to life with the hippodrome’s festive flair!
With names such a Joe McElderry, Leslie Joseph and of course hippodrome panto favourite Matt Slack on the poster, you just know it’s going to be a sell out this Christmas season.
Panto at the hippodrome is extra AF…and this might be the biggest and most professional yet. The costumes, the set, the flying sleigh and a GIANT dragon – the production value at the Hippodrome gets better every year. It was west end worthy production.
Show stealers for me were Faye Brookes as Snow White and Jac Yarrow as the prince who really did bring a perfectly polished musical air to the show.
Faye has played Elle Woods in Legally Blonde, Princess Fiona In Shrek and Frenchy in Grease on the west end so you can see she’s got the skills to really steal the panto show! Jac won a Stage award as best west end debut for his role in Joseph too – these guys have got talent!
Bringing the comedic value again this year was Andrew Ryan as our pantomime dame and Matt Slack as Muddles. A very physical and slapstick calmest duo they bring out all the old jokes in a comforting nostalgic farce.
There’s the usual innuendo and a very wicked baddy played by Birds of a Feather Leslie Joseph. Big songs and even a couple of dance cameos from BGT’s Flawless, there really has been no expense spared at the Hippodrome this year.
If you’re looking for a big and glitzy, camp and glamorous festive night out then Snow White at the Hippodrome is your panto! Merry Christmas everyone!
The Birmingham Panto runs until Sunday 2nd February 2020
