Manchester’s Chill Factore indoor snow centre has staged what it believes is the nation’s (and perhaps the world’s?) first ever Panto on Snow.
The festive performance by the North West Theatre Arts Company is reported to have delighted school children and was enough to make any pantomime dame proud!
The special ‘Snow Panto’ took place on the slope next to Santa’s Grotto and featured all the best characters from the history of Panto with the usual brave heroes and dastardly villains in a musical extravaganza.
The snow ‘crunched’ as the audience enjoyed toe-tapping festive tunes from Christmas shows including: It Feels Like Christmas, Holy Night and Santa Claus is Coming To Town.
“We believe this is the first pantomime set on real snow ever to be held in the UK and it was a really magical experience,” said Morwenna Angove, Chief Executive at Chill Factore, “Of course, set on our slopes the classic pantomime phrase “he’s behind you” might apply to a skier or snowboarder!”
