The brainchild of Kris Lythgoe
Kris Lythgoe was born as Kristopher Michael Lythgoe in 1979. He is a writer and producer who is famous for creating reality television shows like, ‘Who Are You?’ and ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ out of which the latter has won several Primetime Emmy Awards. Lythgoe has also penned down many pantomimes. A panto is a type of musical comedy which was developed in England. It is still performed across the United Kingdom and other English speaking countries.
Kris Lythgoe’s panto is based upon folk tales and fairy tales. Some of his popular pantomimes are, ‘A Cinderella Christmas,’ ‘Aladdin and his Winter Wish’ and ‘Sleeping Beauty and her Winter Knight.’ He came up with the idea for A Snow White Christmas which is the pantomime version of the popular fairy tale, ‘Snow White.’ It premiered in 2011 and was performed for the first time at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, California. The debut production of the show starred Lindsay Pearce as Snow White, Erich Bergen as Prince Harry, Marina Sirtis as Wicked Queen and the Tony Award winning actor, Neil Patrick Harris as the Magic Mirror.
One year later in 2012, A Snow White Christmas was staged at the Pasadena Playhouse and featured the American Music Award winning pop sensation, Ariana Grande as Snow White. The show was then staged at the Salt Lake City’s Rose Wagner Theatre in 2013.
About the show
Many Americans don’t quite know what a pantomime is but there is nothing to worry about as the Lythgoe family is on a mission to bring panto productions to the United States. He introduced his most successful panto, A Snow White Christmas five years ago in 2011. The musical’s book is written by Kristopher Michael Lythgoe whereas the music includes the collection of famous pop songs by artists like Katy Perry, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Bruno Mars.
Kris Lythgoe created the panto, A Snow White Christmas in the US because he wanted to introduce kids to the theater. In his own words he states, “I grew up in the UK, and panto is the first experience a child has with live theater. I’ve been here 15 years now, and I was very surprised there wasn’t really anything that introduced kids to theater. So we started doing panto for that reason.”
The show is not only aimed at children but also adults. It provides the best family entertainment that one can ask for as the musical includes everything from dancing to audience interactions.
Approved by the critics
Another reason apart from family entertainment to watch A Snow White Christmas is that it has been approved by the critics. A host of different publications like Los Angeles Times, Salt Lake Magazine and The San Diego Union Tribune all gave positive reviews regarding the panto.
This time, A Snow White Christmas is going to feature some of the famous names in the entertainment industry. The role of Snow White is going to be played by the Disney star, Olivia Stuck who has also appeared in films like, ‘Last Vegas,’ ‘The Outfield’ and ‘Kate so Far.’ James Royce Edwards will be casted in the panto as Prince Harry. Neil Patrick Harris will be featured in the musical as the Magic Mirror and the part of Wicked Queen will be performed by Yvette Cason.
