The production opens on 8 December, with previews from 3 December, and runs until 31 December.
Snow White and the Happy Ever After Beauty Salon sees Greg Barnett return to Salisbury Playhouse for another festive season, following his starring role as the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood in 2019. Rebecca Cooper and Jake Mitchell also return to Salisbury Playhouse after appearing in Her Naked Skin and The Tailor of Gloucester, respectively.
In a magical 1950s fairy-tale wonderland, young apprentice Snow is working hard in her Aunt Trish’s Beauty Salon. She curls the tails of the three little pigs, sharpens the teeth of the Big Bad Wolf, and perfectly sets Prince Charming’s quiff. But, suddenly stumbling upon Aunt Trish’s magic mirror puts Snow’s life in peril.
Will she be able to survive as she heads underground and attempts to carve her own path to a happily ever after?
With toe-tapping live music, dazzling design, puppetry and laugh out loud entertainment, the show will delight the whole family this Christmas.
