Yes, it's back! The hilarious Snow White and the Seven Poofs adults-only pantomime returns to the London stage this December, and this time it's BIGGER, BOLDER AND RUDER!!!
Taking over Soho's swanky Sanctum Hotel top floor Wild Heart restaurant.
This fabulous, feel-good show is running for a limited run from 11th December 2020 - 3rd January 2021 where slapstick, dinner and drinks are all on the menu.
Staring the uproarious former Big Brother contestant Simon Gross, and leading London Drag Artiste Vicki Vivacious in the title role of ‘Snow White’, as well as a full supporting cast, this production promises to be a delicious blend of fairy-tale campery and giggles.
Set to a glorious soundtrack with high-energy party classics such as 'Get the Party Started', "Dancing Queen, 'You're the One That I Want", 'Like a Virgin' and 'YMCA', the show promises to add some much-needed sparkle to the lacklustre months ahead.

Simon Gross aka Showbiz
Simon trained as an actor at Guildford School of acting.
Simon has had a versatile career, not only as an actor, but also as a presenter, producer, and entertainer. From spending six months as a Butlins Redcoat for the Grand Hotel, Scarborough where he learnt all the tricks of the trade, to playing in children’s shows for the Rank organisation, to playing Benny in the West End production of “Singalongabba” which consisted of wearing a false beard, putting on a silly Swedish accent and miming playing the piano – an achievement Simon felt was a big plus to his CV! (Whitehall Theatre)
Simon is no stranger to the world of pantomime and with over twenty years experience behind him some of his favourite experiences to date include playing Dame opposite Gladiator Wolf for two years in ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’ Smee in ‘Peter Pan’ opposite his great pal the late avenger Gareth Hunt. (Victoria Theatre, Halifax and The Pavilion Theatre, Worthing; The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks respectively). His many television credits include: - ‘On the Road with Maureen Rees’ for the BBC in 1997. In 1998, Simon had the privilege to set up Laurence Llewyn Bowen on a ‘Gotcha!’ for Noel’s House Party for the BBC. In 2004, Simon was asked to be the Second Butler in Channel 4’s ‘What the Butler Saw’ – a six-part documentary on aristocracy. This saw Simon not only being part of a secret panel, but also the start of his unique, off-the-cuff personality bring the screen to life.
Simon is also no stranger to the Drag world and in 2013 produced Drag Divas at The Arts Theatre London with well know female impressionist La Voix in the title role.
Simon played Horrible Hilda in the West End Pantomime Snow White and the Seven Poofs at The Leicester Square Theatre with Drag Artistes Bette Rinse and Tanya. In 2011 he recreated the same role this time with the legendary Titti La Camp as The Queen and the same in 2012 with Mrs Moore as The Queen and Tanya Hyde as Snow White at The Green Carnation.
In 2015 Simon was part of Big Brother and was the first person EVER to be evicted in Big Brother history lasting just two hours in launch opening night Time Bomb twist! However that was not the end of Simon as he was invited back into the house 2 weeks later and lasted up to 30 days and became a Big Brother legend as well as known for his catchphrase SHOWBIZ (which incidentally on opening night he said over 400 times!)
Simon has recently been working on The Big Narstie Show for Channel 4.
