With skin as white as snow, lips as red as blood and hair as black as ebony, Snow White will soon be capturing hearts onstage at Milton Keynes Theatre.

The damsel deemed to be ‘the fairest in the land’ courtesy of a magic mirror – much to the chagrin of the Wicked Queen – will be joined by seven hardworking dwarfs, a handsome prince and some well-known faces in this year’s Christmas pantomime spectacular.

Hollywood superstar Warwick Davis will make his entrance on stage in his colourful lead role heading up the seven dwarfs , while West End and TV favourite Jennifer Ellison and multi-talented entertainer Kev Orkian will bring boo-able baddy the Wicked Queen and loveable compere Muddles to life.

Newcomer Kate Stewart is the fresh-faced singing sensation playing the title role.

“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” marks the 18-year-old’s professional début.

As a recent performing arts school graduate, she cannot wait to be wooed by her Prince Charming.

Kate said: “Having met Shaun Dalton, who will play the dashing Prince Charming, I am really looking forward to playing opposite him.

“Snow White is such a great role to get the opportunity to play straight out of training.

“I can’t wait to work with Jennifer, and Warwick Davis is just amazing.”

Kate trained at The Arts Educational School in London, before studying for a Diploma in contemporary music at Vocal Tech, in London.

With a dad and a brother in the entertainment industry, Kate grew up watching pantomimes from backstage.

She said: “For me, Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without panto.

“I always used to go to the shows that my dad was involved with and watch from the wings.

“I was also lucky enough to perform as a panto babe in the junior chorus so I had a taste of pantomime magic from a very early age. Young children love Snow White and it really is going to be a brilliant show as we have such a strong cast.”
