STRICTLY'S Craig Revel Horwood will be transforming into the ultimate wicked queen next Christmas for the Opera House's Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Hot off the heels of Cinderella opening at the Manchester venue, details of the 2019 panto have been revealed.

A spokesman for the Opera House said: "Packed with all of the traditional pantomime ingredients that Opera House audiences have come to expect, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be spectacularly brought to life with an abundance of jaw-dropping dance, side-splitting comedy, sensational special effects and plenty of festive magic.

"Fresh from the ballroom, Craig Revel Horwood will dazzle in an array of stunning costumes and show Manchester his real mettle as he tries to outwit the fair Snow White and prove to the world that he is the fairest of them all."

Craig is a well-known face on television in the UK and now all over the world, as a judge on all 16 series of BBC1's Strictly Come Dancing. In 2013, Craig wrote and directed a brand-new show, Strictly Confidential that toured the UK starring familiar faces from the glittering show.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be at the Opera House from December 8 to 30, 2019. Visit
