Pantomime Performances


Wednesday 12 February 6pm – Relaxed Performance

     Thursday 13th February 7.30pm

Friday 14th February 7.30pm

Saturday 15th Matinee 2.30pm & Evening 7.30pm


During 2020 SNADS will be celebrating 90 years of amateur productions in Sturminster Newton.


The pantomime in this special year will be the timeless story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. The script is based firmly on the original Grimm Brothers’ tale and contains all the familiar characters and elements of a traditional pantomime making for a wonderful fun-filled family show.


I am delighted to have been invited to direct this special anniversary-year panto, my third for SNADS, and it is a pleasure to work with all the people who give up so much of their time to make this production possible – every single one of them deserves a standing ovation!


We are especially lucky to have so many young people involved in this production – the future belongs to them and hopefully at least another 90 years of SNADS.


Our chosen charity for this year’s production is Dorset Mind.


SNADS and The Exchange are proud to offer their first ‘Relaxed Performance’  on Wednesday 12th February at 6pm -  With low level auditorium lights, no loud bangs or flashing lights, it will be particularly suitable for those with Autism, Special Needs and Learning Difficulties  who would not normally be able to access live theatre.  There will be open access to the Hall during this performance for those needing ‘time out’ and most importantly nobody will mind if your child makes noises, calls out or chatters!


Tickets for this performance only will be at the reduced rate of £5.00. Please phone or call in at The Exchange to book your tickets and to talk to a member of staff – it will be helpful for them to understand your requirements (i.e. raked seating or open area), especially if you will be bringing a wheelchair or push chair/buggy.
