Lucy Ewing as The Wicked Queen from Snow White? You can believe it. Our sweet Lucy takes a turn toward the dark side — with a funny twist — as Charlene Tilton plays the Queen in a stage production of A SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS, which plays at The Pasadena Playhouse in California from December 12 through December 30. An updated version of the classic tale, in the style of the traditional British family Panto, A SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS features family-friendly magic, a comedic twist and modern music. A Panto is known for its interactive style and humor that appeals to fairytale fans of all ages. The cast includes Ariana Grande from Nickelodeon’s “Victorious” as Snow White, Broadway’s Curt Hansen as Prince Harry, an on screen appearance by Neil Patrick Harris from the hit CBS series “How I Met Your Mother” as The Magic Mirror and a beautiful white pony named Blitzen.

Kris Lythgoe, with Lythgoe Family Productions, is on a mission to bring Panto Productions to the United States, “We are thrilled to be partnering with The Pasadena Playhouse.  Pantos are a British tradition.  This interactive, modern musical show will be enjoyed by the entire family.”  The Lythgoes have created television shows such as “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance”.  Audiences will enjoy modern music from Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, and Bruno Mars.
