Snow White is a classic British Pantomime written by the incomparable and irreplaceable Ellie King with music written by her brilliant husband and partner-in-crime, Geoff King. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Panto! Original script and original music form the basis of this magical, sparkling, toe-tapping family show.

Featuring our wonderful mentorship participants, and your favourite panto performers, it’s packed full of all the fun you’ve come to expect from RCTC every year. This is perfect holiday entertainment for the entire family.

“Here in BC the biggest and best pantomime is always an Ellie King production.” – British Canadian Newspaper

Audience Guidance

Pantomime is loud for small ears and spectacular sights can sometimes cause tears! Please be aware, one or two scenes are intended to scare. All the jokes and laughter, however, ensures that we finish Happily Ever After.

Running time is approximately 2 hours, including intermission.

About the Story

Snow White, the sassy and ambitious Princess of Happitania, is engaged to marry the Prince of Romanzia, Prince Roland whom she hasn’t seen since she was three years old. Prince Roland, also nervous about his upcoming nuptials, comes to visit Happitania in disguise. Upon meeting, Snow White reveals her discontent to Prince Roland and describes her dreams and aspirations to him. Prince Roland falls in love with her, but his initial disguise is his folly. Snow’s trust is broken and she runs to her family for guidance.

However, her wicked stepmother and stepsister have been plotting behind her back to take over Happitania and Romanzia behind her back! Snow White escapes their dastardly plans and darts into the forest where she meets the D’Warfs: data miners who need someone to run their house while they’re away. But her evil stepsister isn’t done with her quite yet. Snow White does love a nice, red, ripe apple. Oh dear, who can save Snow from her terrible fate?
