Sydney's favourite panto is on its way
Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs is a Sydney tradition. The panto delights thousands of Australians every July with its incredible sets and special effects, star-studded casts, costumes and musical numbers. Its 2021 dates have been announced.
Director and producer, Bonnie Lythgoe, is presenting Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs at Sydney Coliseum Theatre from Friday 2 July to Sunday 11 July, 2021.
The 2021 edition's stars include Rhonda Burchmore; Tristan McManus (Dancing With The Stars, Studio TEN) and Australia’s favourite panto funnyman, Kev Orkian (Britain’s Got Talent). Anastasia Feneri returns for her second panto to play Snow White and exciting new talent, Max Fulham, will make his panto debut playing the Prince. Sir Cliff Richard will reprise his pre-recorded on-screen role as the Magic Mirror.
Bonnie Lythgoe commented, “Since 2014, we've been spreading the pantomime joy and laughter down-under. After building an incredibly loyal audience across seven dazzling seasons, we really missed laughing and having fun with our amazing Aussie patrons as we had to postpone our 2020 run of shows due to COVID-19. With 2020 being such a challenging year, we're even more excited to be bringing this panto to life in the new year, as it's the perfect way to get family and friends back together again, in a cross-generational show in a wonderful, safe environment.
“I have come close to working with Tristan on several occasions but have never managed to capture him until now. He is an amazing dancer so I am going to enjoy guiding him through the glorious and wonderful Panto experience,” she added. “And the last time that Burchmore appeared as Carabosse in Sleeping Beauty, she received rave reviews from the critics and the public. She played the character with nastiness and evil aplenty and yet had the ability to make the audience laugh with her and adore her.”
