The stage is set for a new production of Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs in Brighouse.

Brighouse Theatre Productions’ annual family pantomime takes place at Brighouse Civic Hall from January 21 to 24, with Melissa Harper in the title role in her first appearance with the group.

She is no stranger to the Brighouse stage, having appeared in two 1940’s weekend shows and a Music from the Musicals show with her sister Natasha.

Acting and singing are very much in the family and Melissa claims that her father and sister have taught her everything she knows in these fields.

Melissa has been performing since the age of three is studying for an HND in Musical Theatre at Wakefield College.

“Mum has also been very supportive, taking me to rehearsals and shows. I’m looking forward to doing something different in Brighouse as I’m a real Disney fan.”

Evening performances on Jaunary 21, 22 and 23 begin at 7.15pm. There are matinee performances on January 23 starting at 2.15pm and on January 24 at 1.15pm. Tickets are on the door or by calling 01484 714563. They cost £10 for adults and £7 for concessions.
