We were hoping Bobby Davro would get a plum lead in a seasonal favourite this year and had early bets on a Dick Whittington. Or at least his cat. However, we can now reveal that in fact he’ll be hamming it up as Muddles the Jester in the New Wimbledon Theatre production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.
Davro may be a household name but last year they had the Fonz. You can’t beat the Fonz.
Still, complementing Davro’s comedic court capers will be the big baddie, “hardman” Ross Kemp. Unfortunately, he won’t be cross dressing as the Wicked Queen which, frankly, is a missed opportunity, but he will definitely be overacting as a villainous henchman with a bald head although he won’t be allowed to use “Ultimate Force”. Not unless the kids get out of line with the sweets.
First post of the year with the Christmas tag! Yay.
Snow White and the Seven Dwarves runs from December 7 to January 20. Book tickets here.
