SNOW WHITE & THE SEVEN DWARFS
This is a perennial favourite, and Spotlight has no less than six versions to offer, plus one abridged version.
Snow White by Craig Hewlett & Eddie Goddard
The wicked Queen’s magic mirror tells her that her stepdaughter Snow White is the fairest in the land. The Queen tells her Gladiators, Wolf and Scorpio, to take her into the forest and kill her. But they let her go, and she seeks refuge in the house of the Seven Dwarfs. The Queen, disguised as an old woman, gives Snow White the Poisoned Apple, but she recovers. The Seven Dwarfs devise a cunning plan to enter the Queen’s castle and deal with her once and for all.
Snow White by Nancy McPherson
In the Kingdom of Glenboak, we find Princess Snow White is being badly treated by her jealous stepmother, Queen Verruca. The hapless King Pimpleheid is powerless to stop the Queen’s wicked plans which she hatches with the aid of Winklepicker, the Wizard. Clarty Carbuncle, the Palace housekeeper and her gormless twins, Wattie and Tattie Carbuncle, provide much of the humour along with the Palace jester, Mincy McSporran and the kitchen maid, Tumshie McTavish. Prince Braveheart of Glencool wants to marry Snow White, but is distraught when she runs off into the forest to escape from Queen Verruca. For a while, Snow White is protected by the intervention of Fairy Flip-Flop, who guides her to a cottage in the wood where the ‘tartan army’ Gnomes look after her. However, the Queen has one last attempt to get rid of Snow White and she appears to have succeeded, much to the chagrin of the Gnomes. All ends well with the arrival of the Prince and his search party. Senga the Sook, the Queen’s grovelling maid, and Growl the dog are instrumental in bringing about a happy ending!
Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs by Simon Rayner Davis
Queen Belladonna, King Archibald’s second wife is extremely vain and everyday checks with her magic mirror to ensure she is the most beautiful. All goes well until one day her magic mirror tells her that Snow White, King Archibald’s daughter, has now become the most beautiful. Belladonna immediately instructs Scratch and Sniff, her incompetent servants, to take Snow White into the forest and kill her. Fortunately Snow White escapes and finds a safe haven in the Dwarfs’ cottage, and they agree to look after her. Belladonna goes in disguise and gives Snow White a poison apple but, will she recover when Prince Rupert, King Archibald and the Dame, Nurse Knick-Knack find her? What do you think!
Snow White & The Seven Not Particularly Tall Peopleby Jack Burgess
This take on the much beloved tale features the Wicked Queen, Chuckle Mines, the Seven Dwarfs, sorry NPTPs, and Dick Whittington & his Cat (pardon?).
King Kev of Saccharinia marries the Acid Queen Tartarina of Vinegaria. Her obsession with being the fairest means bad trouble for her stepdaughter Snow White. She is helped by the seven NPTPS and Dick who has somehow got trapped in the wrong panto.

Snow White & The Three Vertically Challenged People by Ron Nicol
Politically correct panto with all the customary panto elements - a beautiful princess, a handsome prince, an evil step-mother, not one but two fairies, a magic mirror, bungling baddies and delightfully dotty dodderers, plus traditional gags and routines - but only three of those, well, you know who. A fun-filled version of the much-loved tale.

Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs by Dave Buchanan
The plot is based on the original Brothers Grimm fairytale and features Snow White, Prince Jamie, the evil Queen, and the comic duo of Mavis Goodbody and Wally Wimpole; plus a hip Dwarf called Coolio. Set pieces include a wallpapering scene, fully detailed, and a take on "The Weakest Link", featuring the Queen as Anne Robinson!
When Princess Snow White returns from finishing school, her stepmother, the evil Queen Belladonna, is jealous of her beauty and plots her demise. After an assassination attempt in the forest, she is rescued by seven vertically challenged persons, and further aided by the gallant Prince Jamie and outrageous dame Mavis Goodbody.
