Walt Disney was a pretty smart man, so when he wanted a subject for his first movie length animation he chose the best-loved fairy story of all - Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs.

When Old Mill community theatre were casting around for a great 2013 pantomime, they can to the same decision, and chose well-known Perth director Neroli Burton to take the show to the public.

The plot is similar to the much-loved tale, although the dwarfs are now Prof, Drippy, Dozy, Beaky, Merry, Titch and Bigmouth (can't think what happened to Dave Dee and Mick).

Snow White (Arianne Westcott-King) is chased into the forest by her wicked, jealous, step-mother where she meets the seven dwarfs who offer her shelter until she is ultimately rescued by the handsome prince (Sarah Christiner).

Director Burton says: "The main challenge is making sure we can bring some magic to the stage for the children who come to the show. Whether you're a little one or big one and haven't been to a pantomime before we can guarantee a fun-filled night for all."
