Sneezy, Bashful, Sleepy, Happy will have roles at Sheringham Little Theatre later this year.

The venue has unveiled its autumn and winter programme, with the panto being none other than Snow White. 

And for the fist time since the pandemic local youngsters will be joining the cast alongside professional actors for the panto run from December 10 to 31.

Debbie Thompson, theatre director, said other upcoming highlights would include the comic LGBT drama Time and Tide penned by north Norfolk-based EastEnders scriptwriter James McDermott, and amateur dramas about the life of codebreaker Alan Turing, and 1970s women’s “libber” Margot Mason.

Ms Thompson said: “There’s a huge variety of entertainment in our latest programme to cater for all ages, tastes, and interests – from popular family shows and music acts to cutting edge drama to make you think.”

The venue continues to host fundraising events to help its coffers recover from the pandemic including Tuesday evening quizzes, which test teams’ knowledge of topics including music and theatre.

There are also new singing sessions for youngsters aged seven-18, led by Sheringham and Cromer Choral Society musical director David Ballard, aimed at youngsters who want to learn to sing and perform on stage while making new friends. A taster session is planned for September 20 at 5.30pm.
