Lesley Joseph, back on television as man-eating Dorien Green in the BBC sitcom Birds of a Feather, is to play the Wicked Queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Theatre Royal, Nottingham.

Dancing on Ice 2011 champion Sam Attwater, who played Leon Small in EastEnders, will be The Prince while Ben Nickless, who in 2013 was Smee in Peter Pan on the same stage, returns as Muddles. Andrew Ryan will play the Nurse.

The theatre promises a “spectacular” new production of this classic story, with “stunning sets, amazing costumes, an abundance of laughter and special effects and the magnificent seven as you've never seen them before”.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs runs at the Theatre Royal from Saturday (6 December) until Sunday 11 January 2015.
