Snow White

A lonely girl with an eye for adventure.
A wronged stepmother. A magical mirror.
A mine shaft rescue and a brass band of musical miners…

A heart-warming, ingenious take on the classic fairy tale, Snow White set in our very own Yorkshire landscape. This production weaves aerial feats, live music, comedy and compelling performances to give all the family an uplifting treat at Christmas time.

Can the miners break the magic mirror’s spell and set our heroine free, or will the scorned stepmother steal the night?

A co-production between outdoor visual aerialists & theatrical engineers, Pif – Paf and Tell Tale Hearts

‘Music is a delightful mix of northern grit and Creole swing, and you can’t help but admire the skill set of the six-strong cast. Actor-musicians we are used to, actor-musician-acrobats are something else’
