Today the full cast of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs all joined together for the first time in the Mansfield Palace Theatre for the first day of rehearsals! Cast and crew of this years Palace Panto were welcomed by Cultural Services Manager, Andrew Tucker, who spoke of his enthusiasm and joy that the intense and exciting rehearsal period was upon them.

The costumes and sets have arrived and the theatre has been well and truly taken over, with every available space transformed into an intricate part of magical panto land. Meeting rooms are full to the brim with wigs, dresses, shoes and hats, rehearsal rooms have been taken over by directors and their cast, dance studios are filled with music and twirling dancers and on every available corridor you can find a variety of characters learning their lines.

After an intense and rollercoaster two weeks of rehearsals, the Theatre will open it's doors to audiences of the eagerly anticipated Preview day with shows at 2.30pm and 7pm and from then it's straight into five weeks of singing, dancing, booing and hissing!...Oh yes it is!
