Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Otterbourne Village Hall Committee, Otterbourne Village Hall
THE story is of Snow White is so well-known that it requires no synopsis, and all the much-loved characters were here (plus a few extras!).
The entire company gelled together, with no perceived weak links, creating and maintaining individual characters (especially amongst the Dwarfs) with panache, including Joyce Jones’ wickedly delicious Queen, John Pitman’s lovable Dame, and comical court staff Muddles (Kevin Warne) and Marmeduke (Steve Rickman).
Besides the established performers, the new members also rose to the occasion: Megan Robinson (Snow White) and Millie Taylor (Prince) made an engaging couple with real stage presence, with the young chorus members having fabulous energy and winning smiles.
This was a first rate example of how entertaining community theatre can be – a traditional pantomime yet seemingly fresh, fabulous heckling from the audience with quick-witted responses, nurturing young talent, inventive staging and lively choreography all combined for a terrific evening of entertainment.
