went to see snow white and the seven dwarfs at the kings theatre last night...BRILLIANT.....all the cast were great.....thought it wouldn't be the same without gerrard.....but outstanding...although gerrard was sadly missed.....i liked how he was mentioned through the show...a tear in my thinking about him...but the cast did him proud i'm sure he's looking down on them and having a great time......well done again to cast....looking forward to next year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
