It’s just one week until the Charter Theatre in Preston opens its doors to seven dwarves and one blushing princess.

Preston’s premier panto Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs will take to the stage from December 2 until January 3 and hopes to leave none of the audience sleepy or grumpy.

The spectacular set is the biggest the venue has had in over 5 years with over 1,000 pieces making up the magical settings.

Freddie ‘Parrot Face’ Davies will take the lead as director this year, following a highly successful career which has taken him all the way from the tough working men’s clubs of the North East to the hallowed heights of the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Freddie shot to fame with his ‘Parrotface’ character who became one of Britain best loved comedy characters appearing in over 500 Television and Radio shows with his unique stand-up routine.

More recently, his appearance as a talking portrait in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Askaban film has brought fan letters from a new worldwide audience.

The other cast members will also ensure plenty of laughs for the young and the old with comedy legend Jimmy Cricket, Jim Whelan from Coronation street, Pete Lindup, Kristina Castellina, Adam Trembath, Yvonne Patterson and The Magnificent Seven all on board.

The cast will take on a mammoth 51 performances and tickets are already selling well with several performances already sold out.

Tickets start from just £10 with family tickets and special school prices available. To book call 01772 80 44 44 or visit www.prestonguildhall.com.
