Interior designers will be treading the boards at London’s Garrick Theatre this week in a production of Snow White and the Seven Designers.
The show is being produced by the Interior Designers’s Pantomime company to raise money for Dementia UK.
The blurb sets out an intriguing tale which hooks on Snow White’s wicked stepmother promising to turn the world minimalist in a fit of pique.
Ranged against her are a set of interior designers who, the programme promises, will ‘lead the fight against London’s biggest threat – criminally style-less interiors’.
The seven designers are played by real-life interior designers, with Lavinia Dargie starring as Dapper, Andrew Wright as Snappy, Charlotte Lane-Fox as Snazzy, Emma Burns as Natty, Joanna Wood as Classy, Trevor Pickett as Dizzy and Justin Van Breda as Taupey.
Claire German will star as Snow White, with Tim Gosling playing Cassandra and Nina Campbell taking the role of Queen Tatiana.
The set design has been created by Jonathan Coleman, and costumes come from brands including Vivienne Westwood, Jean Paul Gaultier and Zandra Rhodes.
Snow White and the Seven Designers starts tonight and runs until 16 October. For more information visit www.interiordesignerspantomime.com.
