Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

 

 

All classes had a marvellous day in the Cork Opera House to see  Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It was jam packed with magnificent scenery, costumes, live music, spectacular dance routines, comedy capers and the magical special effects we’ve come to know and love!

We enjoyed seeing seven friendly and funny dwarfs, a magical mirror, a handsome Prince, a beautiful Princess, hilarious comedy capers from Nanny Nellie and Muddles and plenty of audience participation.
