Southern Regional College’s annual pantomime is set to take centre stage in the College’s Armagh campus this December with students across disciplines currently in the final stages of rehearsal. The classic fairy tale of Snow White has been given a modern twist as an unpredictable series of events occurs to Snow White whilst lost in the forest with her friends, the seven dwarfs.
So, what can the audience expect? There are still the widely anticipated chants of “Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all”, the poisoned apple and Snow White’s evil stepmother, the Queen, but as for the rest….. well the audience will find out on either Wednesday 7th or Thursday 8th December 2022 when the public can attend this ticketed evening event.
The pantomime is a big collaboration between students at the college, with students on the Level 3 Extended Diploma Performing and Production Arts, Level 2 Hair & Media make-up and Level 3 Extended Diploma Music Performance & Production all contributing. Students are performing under the expert oversight of SRC staff Teresa McBride (Director), Gilda Turner (Choreography), Amy Carson (Costume and Light), Matt Duke (Musical Director), and Paddy Craig (Audio Production)
The pantomime provides a rollercoaster of emotions with lots of gags and plenty of original music composed by college students.

Student Mary-Kate Moore “Snow White”, commented:
“The pantomime is very unpredictable as there is a twist to it. We can’t wait to put on this performance, especially for all the primary school children. There is an amazing buzz within the cast and we cannot wait to perform.”
Teresa McBride, Pantomime Director, commented:
“With student input from performing arts, music, hair & media make-up and arts, Snow White is our biggest production yet. Our students have come together to produce a truly spectacular show which I am excited to share with you this December. You will be awestruck by the pantomime.”
