You can always trust the team behind the Buxton Opera House pantomime to come up with a cracker of a show and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is no exception. It’s a sparkling production celebrating all the traditions of panto with panache and it certainly thrilled the cheering and clapping youngsters in the audience.
