HOLLYWOOD royalty Priscilla Presley will star alongside film and television's Warwick Davis and panto favourite Tam Ryan in the Opera House’s dazzling family pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Priscilla Presley will be making her Manchester stage debut in the role of the Wicked Queen.
It's showing from Friday 5 December to Sunday 4 January and tickets start from just £10.
Priscilla Presley, TV icon and the wife of the King of Rock N Roll, Elvis Presley, will be making her Manchester stage debut in the role of the Wicked Queen, following a smash hit run at New Wimbledon Theatre two years ago.
Priscilla – who is best known for co-starring with Leslie Nielsen in the Naked Gun film series and for her role as Jenna Wade in Dallas – explained: “I was introduced to the world of pantomime two years ago when I played Wicked Queen at Wimbledon. It was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. My grandchildren loved seeing me on stage and I can’t wait to get that costume back on again and start terrorising the people of Manchester!”
Warwick Davis will take on the part of Prof. With a career spanning three decades, he is best known for film roles in Willow and the Harry Potter series as well as starring on TV screens in Life’s Too Short.
It’s a welcome return to the Opera House for Warwick who appeared recently with his newly-formed Reduced Height Theatre Company in See How They Run and he’s excited about the opportunity: “I’m delighted to be appearing with Priscilla Presley in Snow White at the Opera House this Christmas. I’m looking forward to working with the theatre, the cast and crew to bring you the best panto Manchester has ever seen. It’s a ‘tall order’ but I’m determined it won’t fall ‘short’ of audience expectations!”
Lancashire-based comedian, actor and singer Tam Ryan now considers Manchester as his second home after starring in the Opera House’s pantomime for the past four years – winning rave reviews and a loyal fan following.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a dazzling fairytale of a pantomime guaranteed to melt everyone’s hearts; watch as Snow White and the dwarfs attempt to thwart the Wicked Queen.
Snow White will feature all the traditional pantomime ingredients: sensational songs, sparkling costumes, a live band, dazzling dance routines, hilarious slapstick comedy and bags of audience participation, plus the magnificent sets the Opera House panto is famous for.
