“The Wrong Crowd are a delightful company who first came to my attention at Edinburgh in 2011 with The Girl with Iron Claws, a Nordic fairy tale. Not every show since has hit the mark, but the company’s puppetry is always a treat and—like Kneehigh under Emma Rice—they are very good at offering a different slant on traditional stories. Here it’s Snow White, who has been transported to the 1950s and a job in her auntie’s Happy Ever After Beauty Salon. But auntie isn’t best pleased when her niece looks in the salon’s secret magic mirror... A great show for families.”
Think you know Snow White? Think again!
Join us at Ovalhouse this Christmas for a joyful and irreverent new adaptation of the classic story.
In a fifties fairytale wonderland, Snow is hard at work in her Aunt Trish’s Beauty Salon- curling the 3 Little Pigs’ tails, sharpening Big Bad’s teeth and setting Prince Charming’s quiff. But when she accidentally glances into the secret Magic Mirror Aunt Trish sets out to destroy her niece forever. The only way Snow can survive is to head underground!
Crafted from a unique formula of the finest puppetry, toe-tapping live music and dazzling humour, the award winning Wrong Crowd’s new twist on an old story will enthrall audiences young and old.
Come and take a bite this Christmas!
