Snow White meets the wild west

St Luke's Players perform Snow White and the Magnificent Seven Dwarfs

Tickets are on sale now for a not-so-classic Christmas panto by St. Luke’s Players.

This year they bring the wild west version of Snow White and the Magnificent Seven Dwarfs by Damian Trasler, David Lovesy and Steve Clark and directed by Allan Hayes.

The west is best in this reworking of the classic fairy tale. Snow White, heiress to the Happy Ever After cattle ranch, is the fairest girl on the prairie – but her wicked and jealous stepmother, Widow Blackheart, plots to separate her from her fortune. Can Snow White survive her treacherous schemes and win the hand of Sheriff Vince Charming? A band of seven brave miners, her lifelong friend, Nanny Oakley, a pantomime horse and a brainless idiot, Silly Billy the Kid, are there to help her.

The show runs Dec. 22, 23, 27, 29, 30 and Jan. 2 at 7:30 p.m. with 2 p.m. matinees on Dec. 20, 21, 26, 27, 28, Jan. 1 and 3 in the theatre at 3821 Cedar Hill X Rd.

For tickets and information visit stlukesplayers.org online or call 250-884-5484.
