A FAMILY pantomime is currently wowing audiences in Alloa with more shows to come until the weekend.

Forefront Stage School's 2018 spectacle Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is currently on display at Alloa Town Hall and Saturday, January 13, will present the last chance for people to go and see.

Featuring a 70 strong cast of mainly five to 18-year-olds, the show was produced by Forefront principal Amber Rennie, alongside pantomime director Lynsey Stalker.

They worked side-by-side to create a seamless show, bringing Snow White to life using a script written by actor Alan McHugh.

Sarah Kerr, a former member of the school, choreographed many of the musical numbers in the piece with a loyal chorus of pupils singing and dancing with all their might from start to finish.

Cute, yet surprisingly-mature, the 14 members of the junior cast aim to melt hearts in the first act while eight-year-olds who play the seven courtiers show talent underpinned by hard work.

The beautiful Snow White is played by Nadia Smith, complimenting her is the Prince, Siobhan McDade.

Dame for this production is Betty, and playing her to an-over-the top, sassy perfection is Ross Turnbull with partner First Minister Chambers, played by Taylor Williams.

The goodie and the baddie are in superb contrast to each other this year, taking the role of the Scottish fairy Aurora is Alanna White while Hannah Ross plays the evil Queen Sadista.

Putting a bit of a modern twist on the show is the Magic Mirror, in Erin Douglas, who appears through television screens at either side of the stage during the show.

Throughout the show, the costumes are said to be stunning and a wide range of props and scenery were created for the show as well, including a large house with usable furniture.

Amber wanted to thank everyone who is helping to make the production run so smoothly and also Forefront's dedicated audiences who support the school each year.

She told the Advertiser the feedback has been fantastic so far, with people saying the production has been “second to none”.

The show is on at 7pm each day, while Saturday will also see a matinee at 2pm. To purchase tickets, call the box office on 07599 977 732.
