The King’s Theatre, Glasgow has announced that Darren Brownlie, Blythe Jandoo, Liz Ewing and Christopher Jordan-Marshall have been cast in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, produced by Crossroads Pantomimes.
The Scottish performers will take to The King’s Theatre stage from Thursday 2 December 2023 to Sunday 7 January 2024 joining much-loved panto legends, Elaine C Smith as Nurse Mary and Johnny Mac as Muddles, in a glittering festive family panto treat for all ages.
Darren Brownlie and Blythe Jandoo return to The King’s for Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs following panto-tastic performances in last year’s Beauty and the Beast. This year Darren plays the mischievous Man in the Mirror and Blythe takes on the title role of Snow White. They will be joined by King’s Theatre newcomer Liz Ewing as The Wicked Queen. Liz is no stranger to boos and hisses though, having previously played the role at the Festival Theatre in Edinburgh. Christopher Jordan-Marshall, who was last seen at The King’s in Cinderella, makes a regal return as the Prince.
Darren has worked extensively in Scottish theatre, including performances with National Theatre of Scotland and the Tron Theatre and is a series regular in River City (BBC Scotland). Blythe will be performing in Gypsy (Pitlochry Festival Theatre) with recent theatre credits including A Mother’s Song (MacRobert Arts Centre) and The Secret Garden, The Maggie Wall and Sunshine on Leith (Pitlochry Festival Theatre). Liz’s previous theatre work includes Follies (National Theatre), Gypsy (Savoy Theatre), Priscilla Queen of the Desert (Palace Theatre) and numerous TV appearances including The Nest and Doctors (BBC). Christopher’s theatre work includes 9 (Savoy Theatre) Mamma Mia (Novello Theatre) and Still Game Live (SSE Hydro).
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs promises audiences an abundance of comedy, sensational song and dance numbers, fabulous costumes and stunning scenery. With a magical mirror, The Magnificent Seven and audience participation (oh yes there is!) you have the perfect recipe to outwit the Wicked Queen and let love prevail in the fairest panto in the land.
The King’s Theatre Pantomime has been produced by Crossroads Pantomimes, the world’s biggest pantomime producer, since 2017 with Elaine C Smith and Johnny Mac anchors in creating the festive magic.
