Lythgoe Family Productions and Magic Pictures International have announced the 2011 holiday season of traditional British family Panto, which will include A Snow White Christmas, to play November 30-December 18 at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, and Cinderella Christmas, which will play December 22-January 8 at The Scherr Forum Theatre in Thousand Oaks.

Emmy Award winner and Broadway star Neil Patrick Harris will play the onscreen special guest role of "The Magic Mirror" in Snow White, while Marina Sirtis, best known as Deanna Troi on Star Trek: The Next Generation, will play the role of The Wicked Queen. Bonnie Lythgoe will direct, with choreography by Dancing With the Stars' Mark Ballas and musical direction by Michael Orland.

This updated version of the classic tale will feature family-friendly magic, a comedic twist and modern music, including Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," The Village People's "YMCA," and Michael Jackson's "Thriller."

A Cinderella Christmas will star Emmy nominee Fred Willard as Cinderella's father, Baron HardUp, Broadway veteran Shoshana Bean as the fairy godmother, and American Idol alum David Hernandez as Dandini.
