ADULT PANTO FOR CELLAR (article first published : 2000-10-22)

Snow White & Several Dwarfs (or “A Girl who Drifted”) will mark the fifth in the series of annual adult pantomimes held in the Playhouse Cellar over the festive season.

Presented by the DuMarc Music & Clothing Company, Snow White & Several Dwarfs opens on November 2 and promises to be an action-packed evening “fiendishly spiced with witty repartee, sizzling production numbers and sing-alongs.”

The show stars Karen Campbell-Gillies as the ("not so" snow white) Snow White, effervescent Clinton Philander as the narrator and Catherine Mace as the wicked Step Mother. Two of the dwarfs, Sleazy and Lumpy, are played by Calli Denton who recently appeared in Stars and Trips at the Cellar and Kaseran Pillay who presented his Kaseran’s Komedy Club at Kwasuka during Slice of Madness.

A welcome new face on the professional stage, having now completed his Technikon Natal drama training, is newcomer Bryan Hiles who appeared in Pieter Scholtz’s recent production of A Man for All Seasons. He will play the part of the Huntsman.

The tongue-in-cheek twisted version of the classic fairy tale was scripted by adult pantomime veterans: Patrick Hyland who co-wrote the scripts of the previous Cellar adult pantomimes and Heather Barclay-Whiffin who appeared in them. Over-the-top glitzy costumes have been designed by talented Gareth Kenna who was also responsible for the costumes for Aladdin and De Wet Wraight's hit show Showoff.

The show is directed by Heather Barclay-Whiffin and musical director De Wet Wraight, who produced and directed previous Cellar sell-outs Sinderella and Aladdin. It will include numbers such as Weather Girls' It's Raining Men, Barry White's You're my first, my last..., as well as several Liza Minnelli and Gloria Gaynor numbers.

Tickets R100 (include a three-course meal) with performances Tuesdays to Sundays with special bonus priced performances on Fridays at 17h15 and Sundays at 18h00. Book at Ticketweb or at the Playhouse. Group bookings of 20 or more from Sharon on 083 292-5324.
