With the Magnificent Seven as you’ve never seen them before, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be a pantomime you won’t want to miss.

Showing at the Birmingham Hippodrome between December 19 and February 2,

Heading the star-studded cast as the handsome Prince is the multi-talented John Partidge. John, who is currently starring in A Chorus Line at the London Palladium, is best known for playing the role of Christian in BBC1’s EastEnders. He was part of the panel for the hugely successful BBC series Over the Rainbow and is a guest host of the National Lottery draws.

Joining John will be fashion guru Gok Wan, making his pantomime debut in Birmingham as The Man in The Mirror.

Dynasty star Stephanie Beacham adds a touch of evil glamour as The Wicked Queen with Birmingham favourite Gary Wilmot making his first performance as the hysterical pantomime Dame.

Following his popular appearance in 2008 the comedy ventriloquist Paul Zerdin returns in the role of Muddles with a few of his friends including the cheeky and loveable Sam. The headline cast is completed by Matt Slack who will play the role of Odd Job and Over The Rainbow winner Danielle Hope in the role of Snow White.

Fashion guru Gok Wan told the BBC’s Midlands Today: “This is my opportunity to go high octane camp for nine weeks of my life and I’m going to go to town with it – I’m very excited.

“The wicked queen delivers the immortal line, ‘mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?’ at which point I dive on stage to deliver one of my favourite lines I’ve ever been given, ‘not you, love.’”
