Mirror Mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all? Is going to be an important question at the Grimby Auditorium come the festive season and one that will be answered by children’s television favourite Justin Fletcher*. Justin will be making a special appearance via video projection as the Magic Mirror in a spectacular special effect that will delight all the family.
Steve Boden from Imagine Theatre who are once again producing the pantomime at the Auditorium explains at little more about how it works. “Justin appears in our magic mirror sequence via a pre-recorded video projection. It is a fabulous special effect as the mirror dominates the stage and Justin, as always, gives a wonderfully comical performance – I think our Magic Mirror is probably the funniest in pantoland! It is great to watch the interaction between him and the Wicked Queen as he tells her she is no longer the fairest in the land – as needless to say it is not what she wants to hear! Although Justin is not there in person the children still get very excited when the mirror comes to life and they see him for the first time.”
The traditional tale of Snow White, familiar to many from the Disney movie, has a special panto style twist with the inclusion of the hilarious Dame Bree Brightshine and Will the Jester, loyal friends of Snow White out to thwart the evil plot of the Wicked Queen and her henchman, Sir Richard Darling.
A spokesman for the Auditorium promises “as in previous years there will be spectacular sets and costumes, fabulous songs and dances, and plenty of slapstick fun. This will Imagine’s third year producing pantomime at the Auditorium and the previous two shows have been brilliant and everyone is working hard to make sure that this year’s is no different.”
Snow White runs from Friday 11 December to Sunday 27 December 2015.
