Vancouver’s Metro Theatre continues its 30-plus year holiday musical Pantomime tradition with the presentation of Snow White that features some local talent.
The Good Fairy is played by Delta Secondary graduate Abrielle Sarah Dumansky who also is a member of the Tsawwassen-based All Stars Cheerleading. Mark Turpin, who is a drama teacher at Delview Secondary, will be making a special one day appearance at the Boxing Day (Dec. 26) matinee.
Snow White will be running from Dec. 9 until Jan. 3 with evening performances at 7:30 p.m. and matinees at 2 p.m.
Scotia Browner as Snow White and James Walker as The Dame, lead a cast of 15 talented singers, dancers, and actors to bring the show to life in a delicious blend of colourful scenery, sparkling costumes, toe-tapping tunes, dazzling dance routines, slapstick gags and oodles of audience participation.
“Snow White has been loved by many, for many years now. I felt it was an important piece of history that needed updating,” explained director Chris Adams. “Along with writer Erik Gow, we were able to update the classic story with a modern eye lens. While still setting the story in the age of the Grimm’s fairy tale, this Snow White wants to be more than just a princess, she wants love and hope and fun. She is a little spunky, fiery, but still a little in love. COVID-19 has been hard on the arts community. I am so happy to welcome both artists and audience back to the theatre – especially to the Panto.”
Evening performances are scheduled for Dec. 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, 18, 22 and 30. Matinees are Dec. 12, 19, 26, 27, Jan. 1, 2, 3. Tickets are $30 for adults and $25 for ages 16 and under.
Tickets can be purchased online at: or by calling 604-266-7191.
Metro Theatre is located at 1370 Southwest Marine Drive in Vancouver.
