5 January 2021

To celebrate their OnComm award, and with the country set to stay at home, the King’s Head Theatre and Charles Court Opera are delighted that their smash hit online pantomime, Snow White in the Seven Months of Lockdown will now be available to watch on demand until midnight on Sunday 10 January.

Originally due to close last weekend, viewers now have a whole extra week to catch the enduring mix of toe-tapping music, side-splitting gags and fantastic fun from the comfort of their living rooms in this cheeky and inventive take on the age-old  story of Snow White

Since it went live in mid-December, critics have lined up to praise the show’s witty script and exceptional performances and this weekend it received an OnComm award from the Offies, which recognises exceptional Off West End theatre presented online. 

The production stars five much-loved Charles Court Opera regulars, including John Savournin as Mrs Snow White, and features the voices of League of Gentlemen and Sherlock star Mark Gatiss and his real-life partner, Ian Hallard (The Boys in the Band - Whatsonstage awards Best Actor nomination). 

Featuring interactive viewers-choice moments, and with adult-only and family friendly versions available to stream on the device of your choosing, this unique panto experience is the perfect way to see in the New Year. 

Snow White in the Seven Months of Lockdown is the King’s Head Theatre’s first show since the venue closed in March. A cheeky reimagining of Snow White, it is inspired by Charles Court Opera’s wildly successful 2015 King’s Head Theatre panto, Mirror Mirror (5 stars Whatsonstage, 5 stars Critics Pick, The Stage). It is Charles Court Opera’s 14th annual panto, and the sixth in partnership with the King’s Head Theatre.

The King’s Head Theatre and Charles Court Opera are both painfully aware of the number of their colleagues and friends that have not been able to work with and support this year. They will be donating a share of  the profits from this production to the Theatre Artists Fund, and would like to thank the fund for all the work it has been doing.
