1949 Snow White London Stage Show - Poster

Jack Hylton was a well-known English band leader and impresario. In 1949, he produced a London stage show based on Disney's Snow White. A poster from the period advertises it's opening at the Victoria Palace "by arrangement with Walt Disney-Mickey Mouse Ltd."

The show was directed by Harry Benet and ran from 24 December 1949 to 4 February 1950. It's listed here in The London Stage: 1940-1949 by J.P. Wearing.
