Bonnie Lythgoe directs the inaugural Panto at the Playhouse presentation, which features a book by Kris Lythgoe, choreography by Emmy nominee Spencer Liff, and musical direction by Michael Orland.
An updated version of the Snow White story in the style of a traditional British family Panto, the production features hits by the likes of Huey Lewis and the News, Michael Jackson, and Katy Perry, as well as magic, comedy, dancing, and a live miniature pony.
Grande will play Snow White to Tilton's Wicked Queen and Harris' Magic Mirror. The cast also includes Jonathan Scott Meza as Muddles and David Figoli as Herman the Huntsman. The role of Snow White's Prince will be announced in the future.
The creative team includes the Lythgoe Family Productions creative department (scenic and costume design), with additional costume design by Julia Clancy, Donna Maas, and Kleev Guessford, and additional scenic design by J.J. Wickham.
