Buxton Opera House - Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs
Selina from What to do with the kids took her family to see Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the amazing Buxton Opera House.
In a nutshell it was amazing! The kids (aged 7 and 6) were laughing and totally into the story and even my self-confessed grumpy husband laughed and enjoyed the show!
Buxton Opera House is an old, traditional theatre and small, this made the experience really interactive and you literally felt part of the performance.
The panto was full of jokes (for all ages) modern songs we could sing along to and lots of hilarity. The baking scene with lots of cream pie action had my son on his feet giggling all the way though. Who doesn't love a bit of old style comedy?
The acting was great. The Dame had us all in stitches mainly due to 'her' very northern accent and excellent wardrobe, while the evil Queen was a proper villain with a good set of pipes! There were lots of local jokes - poor old Stockport got it in the neck!
The venue is amazing, there is parking at the back of the Opera House which was very reasonable for £5 a day. Buxton is lovely and worth spending more time there and taking in some sights and food before the panto. Food at the Pavilion next door was not only amazing, but really good value.
