As the Theatre prepares to raise the curtain on its annual pantomime this weekend, the creative team has been seeking expert advice from one of the region’s top hairdressing and beauty salons.
Set in the glitzy world of Art Deco Hollywood, this year’s production of Snow White is recreating the look of the era, which includes hair, make-up and costume, as well as set design and props.
Snow White is portrayed as an up-and-coming starlet looking for her big break on the silver screen and to help create her fashionably glamorous 1920s hairstyle, stylists from Saks Hair and Beauty at Sedbury Hall near Richmond have been called in to help.
Clare Allen, Director of the pantomime, said: “Our designers produced some wonderful images of how the Snow White character should look but actually creating the desired style can be difficult, especially as women today don’t tend to be familiar with techniques such as setting waves and pinning rolls of hair! The team from Saks has not only come up with a fabulous look but they have also taught Emily - the actress playing Snow White - how to recreate the style in her own dressing room.
The pantomime starts on Saturday 3 December and runs until Sunday 8 January.Tickets cost from £8 to £21 (excluding premium performances) and are available from the Box Office on 01748 825252 or via this website.
