Barrow Hills' Panto - An Abbasolute Success


A traditional Snow White pantomime blended with the iconic songs of ABBA …

Dwarves galore who work as accountants during the day but also moonlight as owners of a B&B …

A festival vibe as the audience waves coloured glow sticks …

Year 8 children at Barrow Hills certainly put on an original performance this week with their unique Snow White: An ABBA Spectacular extravaganza.

Staying true to the classic Pantomime concept, the boys dressed as pantomime dames donning their tights and fancy frocks to play parts such as the Wicked Queen, Fairy Nasty and of course (in this Barrow Hills interpretation), the hat shop owner Millicent and Nurse Gladys! Meanwhile, the girls took on the roles of two of the ‘principal boys’ by portraying the characters of Prince Kevin and Prince Ken. The evening’s hilarious entertainment was given an edgy twist as the story played out to the sound track of some of ABBA’s greatest hits including Super Trouper, Dancing Queen, Thank you for the Music, Mamma Mia and the unforgettable Waterloo – all of which proved an irresistible cue for some active audience participation.

Luisa Mason, Head of Drama at Barrow Hills said, “The children have worked so hard to combine rehearsals with revision for their mock Common Entrance exam and I couldn’t be prouder of their achievements. Every child put 100% into the production and the constant roars of laughter and enthusiastic singing from the audience confirm the success of today’s show.”
