Scrooge, Snow White, Harry Potter and Father Christmas are just a few of the characters to expect from the new pantomime Scrooge and the Seven Dwarfs, running at the Theatre503 from the 22nd November until the 7th January 2017.
One cold Christmas Eve, Santa and his elves are preparing for another busy night. The reindeer are ready and the sleigh is packed. There’s just one problem; the sleigh won’t start because the Wicked Witch has stolen all the Christmas spirit. In his desperation, Santa looks to the most unlikely of heroes to save the day… the terrifying Ebenezer Scrooge.
This new and unique pantomime will be directed by Simon Evans, whose recent productions include the critically acclaimed Dazzle and Bug at Found111.
Sleeping Trees are a comedy trio who mix classic elements of pantomime with a range of fast and physical comedy. Talking about the news the company said: “We are all hugely excited to bring a brand new pantomime to Theatre503 this year. We love the audience in Battersea and are working hard to make sure that this panto is bigger, better and even more Christmassy than last year’s.”
Suitable for ages six and above, Scrooge and the Seven Dwarfs is written and performed by James Dunnell-Smith, Joshua George Smith and John Woodburn.
This is the third year in which Sleeping Trees have appeared at Theatre503 and invite audiences to join them as they recreate every character you’d expect to find in a Pantomime, as well as some you might not.
