Snow White is set to fill His Majesty’s Theatre with festive cheer this Christmas season, and the city theatre is giving away 300 tickets to local community groups and charities to join in the fun.
Aberdeen Performing Arts, the company which runs the theatre, and the producers of the show, Qdos Entertainment, are inviting groups to apply for the tickets to Christmas pantomime.
Charities and community groups are invited to apply using the application form on the Aberdeen Performing Arts website for tickets to panto performances on Tuesday December 4 and Wednesday December 5. The deadline for applications is Monday, November 12.
Those who are selected for tickets will enjoy a trip to HMT to see the spectacular panto Snow White, starring Lee Mead as Prince Charming, Alan McHugh as Nurse Nellie MacDuff, Jordan Young as Muddles and Juliet Cadzow as the Wicked Queen. Aberdeen’s own Jenna Innes will star as Snow White.
The show is being staged by the same team that has produced the HMT panto for the last 14 years, with the usual abundance of comedy, lavish sets, fabulous costumes, and of course a few surprises in store.
There’ll be a magical mirror, seven friendly dwarfs, a beautiful princess, a handsome prince and plenty of audience participation as audiences outwit the Wicked Queen and let love prevail in this glittering festive treat for all ages.
Aberdeen Performing Arts Chief Executive Jane Spiers said: “The HMT panto is a wonderful festive tradition for a lot of people, and for many children it is their first experience of live theatre. We would like to share that magical excitement with as many people as we can, and we are therefore delighted to continue with our annual tradition of offering tickets for the show to community groups who might not otherwise get to visit the theatre at Christmas.”
