A panto with a difference! On being requested to extend my Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs to accomodate a year group of 60, I thought why not team those 22 dwarfs up with 22 elves - with a few reindeer (and Father Christmas) thrown in?! Performance time will be around 45 mins plus - so a lot longer than my other plays BUT Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs will remain available in its original 20 min version, for those preferring the shorter option.

plus special Christmas 'package'.
