The all new pop-powered drag panto for adults, “Snow White and the Seven Poofs”, will be raising money for GMFA, the gay men’s health charity, when it hits the West End this December. SG Productions will be holding a raffle in aid of the charity at each performance of the show’s run at the Leicester Square Theatre, from 1 December 2010 to 9 January 2011.
The play is a modern day twist on the classic fairy tale, filled with comedy, audience participation and good old festive cheer. It stars Bette Rinse as the inimitable evil Queen and 2008 Drag Idol winner Tanya Hyde as Snow White, alongside pantomime veteran Simon Gross as Horrible Hilda.
The organisers warn this is an adults only pantomime and definitely not suitable for children, the faint-hearted and persons of a prudish nature. For tickets, contact the box office on 0844 847 2475 or visit www.leicestersquaretheatre.com.
Simon Gross, director and co-writer of the production, says: “This is a real fun-filled, feel good show – the perfect way to kick-start the festive season. We open on World AIDS Day so it’s fitting that we support GMFA and the important work it does for the gay community around HIV and sexual health.”
