Largs Players are giving a star debut to their choice as leading lady for their pantomime, 'Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs.' - writes Drew Cochrane.

Student Rebecca Kane, who looks the part, has been handed the role of Snow White in a hilarious script, written and directed by young producer Ruairidh Forde. It will be Rebecca's first performance on the Barrfields stage but she is set to wow the audience with her singing and acting.

She will be supported by not one, but 14 members of the Youth Theatre, who have been selected to be the Dwarfs - that's two lots of seven in case you are confused - at Barrfields Theatre from Thursday to Saturday, December 8-10.

Also in the talented cast are Matt Wilkin as The Prince, Matt Carnegie as Hamish, Pat Nicol as the Wicked Queen, Jon Wilkin as The Mirror and, in a twist, experienced female actress Jackie Templeton will be the Dame. There is also one of the biggest panto choruses in the country, tutored by Ruairidh, who also choreographs, and musical director David Edwards.

Tickets have gone on sale on Players or on the hotline of 0333 666 3366 with special family tickets (two adults, two children) at £35. Adult tickets are only £12, children £8 and concessions £10 making it one of the most economical pantos in the land.

As an added bonus there are actually two Saturday 1.30pm and 6.30pm to suit folk from Cumbrae and afar!
