After the success of “Cinderella” and “Aladdin”, Bangkok Community Theatre (BCT) is bringing British pantomime back to Bangkok with the much-loved tale of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”.



Directed by Ian Robinson, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will bring on stage the usual panto chaos, audience participation, music, ghosts, fairies and cross dressing, including the traditional panto dame.

The show will be performed in English and will offer fun-filled entertainment for the whole family.

As with all BCT’s shows, the cast is multinational with actors and singers coming from different places around the world.

 The surplus of the show’s income will be donated to Operation Smile, a particularly worthy cause.

 “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” will be performed at Creative Industries at M-Theatre, Phetchburi Road, Bangkok from November 30 to December 2 and again from December 7-9 at 7.30, except for December 2 and December 9 when performances begin at 6pm and 1.30pm respectively.

And for all the non-British who might want to cone along, a reminder: British pantomime has nothing to do with mime. It is a chaotic and anarchic mix of fun, song, dance, bad jokes and corny acting.

Tickets for the evening show are priced at Bt900; for the matinees, children 13 and under pay Bt650.
