• Short Summary

    This whole issue is devoted to 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarves' - a pantomime on water skis.

  • Description

    Reading, Berkshire.

    The story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves is performed on water skis on a lake; possibly by the Theale Water Ski Circus (see also CP 509 - Water Ski Circus).

    The commentary is spoken in rhyme throughout; the performers are all in elaborate costumes - all the usual characters are here, plus a white rabbit riding a bicycle on water skis, and a grey mouse skiing along on a chair. Various stunts are shown; lines of water skiing lovelies; slapstick through the course of the story.

    Note: the main performer might be Pam Horton and the performance the "Pam Horton's Water Spectacular". Cuts exist - see separate records.

    The star of the show was definitely Pam Horton who trained in Cyprus Gardens and then trained a small group at Theale. In 1969 the Water Ski Spectacular moved to Alcudia in Mallorca for the summer season.
