The Snow Queen set to blow into The Gateway

Seaton Gateway will be staging its pantomime next wee, with opening night on Thursday, February 8.
Under the direction of Mary Bowles, rehearsals are their final stages for The Snow Queen, by Alan Frayn, with many of the principal parts being taken on by younger members.
Mary said: “It’s the hardest panto I have ever directed!
“It travels through so many different scenes as it tells the story of a search through all four seasons to find the boy Kai, who has been captured by the evil snow Queen (played by 14-year-old Louise Tyne).
“It is full of the usual corny jokes and expected panto content. We have some fab songs and another spectacular junior members dance routine.”
She said there has been a lot of work going in the background.
She said: “Beautiful costumes have been made, stage sets built, lighting programmed and this year we are trying projection instead of backcloths.”
Although the Saturday matinee has already sold out, there are still some seats left for the 7pm performances on Thursday and Friday, and the 6pm performance on Sunday, February 11.
