Think you know Snow White? Think again!
Join us at Ovalhouse this Christmas for a joyful and irreverent new adaptation of the classic story.
In a fifties fairytale wonderland Snow is hard at work in her Aunt Trish’s Beauty Salon- curling the 3 Little Pigs’ tails, sharpening Big Bad’s teeth and setting Prince Charming’s quiff. When she accidentally glances into the secret Magic Mirror, Aunt Trish sets out to destroy her niece forever. The only way Snow can survive is to head underground.
Crafted from a unique formula of the finest puppetry, toe-tapping live music and dazzling humour, the award winning Wrong Crowd’s new twist on an old story will enthral audiences young and old.
Come and take a bite this Christmas!

On Friday 14 December Bechdel Theatre will host a post-show conversation: An audience discussion on the themes of the show from a feminist perspective.
Less like a Q&A and more like a book club, Bechdel Theatre's post-shows take place in an informal circle, giving all audience members an opportunity to share their responses to the show and talk about any topics it raises. After the 7pm performance.
On Friday 21 December our Head of Theatre, Owen Calvert-Lyons will be hosting a discussion with some the cast. It will take place in the auditorium five minutes after the 7pm show - free to attend. Approx 25mins.
Family Day! The Wrong Crowd are holding a FREE Puppet Making workshop in our Cafe on Sat 15 December. Drop in from 1 - 4pm to take part.
