Snow White - Pantomime Scripts - All Groups
Co-written with Eddie Goddard, this is a new version of the classic tale featuring the Wicked Queen, the Seven Dwarves, and a new comedy duo, Gladiators Wolf & Scorpio. "Craig and Eddie are to be congratulated on this new take on a familiar classic. The script buzzes with comedy brilliance. This is not your standard version of those loveable dwarves. These dwarves are renamed and get their name from their defunct variety act. They sing, dance and even rap! Taking the mickey out of modern commercial panto, the Gladiators find themselves in the comic firing line. If you're looking for something fresh, then this script is well worth a look. Even imaging the staging and audience interaction, this panto really grabbed us from start to finish." ASMagazine, August 2009
