  • Snow White

    by Mickey Coburn
    • 120 Minutes
    • 12 Male, 9 Female, Min/Max 21

    Children's Theatre, Community, Large Cast, Middle School

    Snow White, often considered a Grimm Fairytale, actually came from books by the French Huguenot Charles Perrault, the creator of Mother Goose. This re-creation of the story is very modern in its dialogue and conception of the characters. Snow White is saucy and flippant, and the play has a sense of humor, timeless charm and a touch of “camp” that adults, as well as children, enjoy.
