Making her 26th consecutive appearance at the Grand Opera House, the original desperate housewife May McFettridge returns to star as May the Cook in Northern Ireland’s premier pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs this Christmas.
Joining May on stage as the dashing and handsome Prince is X Factor’s Chico, who became a household name as a finalist on the show’s second series. Not content with knocking Madonna off the top of the UK chart with his hit Chico Time he swapped singing for skating and captivated the nation with his spectacular routines and reached the final of ITV1’s Dancing on Ice. Since then he has appeared on numerous television shows and in several pantomimes, winning rave reviews for his performances.
The undisputed Queen of Panto May McFettridge said: “I can’t wait to come back for my twenty-sixth pantomime and playing May the Cook shouldn’t be too hard as I’m currently moonlighting in the kitchen of the Europa Hotel. I’m also thrilled that my bust has been installed in the Grand Opera House to honour my quarter century of pantomime, which I hope continues to be admired by men for years to come.”
Executive Producer of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Jonathan Kiley said: “We are delighted that May will be topping the bill once again with us in Belfast and joined by Chico as the Prince. It promises to be another hilarious show full of laughs, music and magic. The Grand Opera House panto is still an unmissable festive treat for Northern Ireland audiences of all ages.”
Packed with all of the traditional Grand Opera House pantomime ingredients audiences have come to expect, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs includes stunning scenery, plenty of boos and hisses, incredible music and dancing and a diamond mine full of surprises, including magical special effects courtesy of The Twins FX.
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is the fairest pantomime of them all!
