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.

Play Details

Overview

In this vibrant, funny, full-length adaptation, we have a cast of lively characters including the seven “little men”, three quirky sisters, and four animals. The seven dwarfs appear as the Brothers Hoffenstein:  Mandel, Mertel, Werther, Wenzel, Stoffel, Steffel and Fritz! And other characters have their own unique presence in the play, along with new comic characters.

This re-creation of the story is made modern with its humor, timeless charm and a touch of “camp” that adults, as well as children, enjoy.

A delightful romp! Snow White was first produced by the Boston Children’s Theatre, directed by Mickey Coburn, with sets by Bobby Summerlin, costumes by James Beaman, lighting by Christopher Akerlind.

From the play:

(Snow White grabs a broom & starts to sweep; then she polishes the floor with a rag. The 7 little men appear in a choreographed parade. The first is the leader; the seventh, taller than the rest, attempts continually to cover up the fact that he’s taller. They have long white beards & all wear pointed hats or hoods and wooden shoes & carry burlap bags filled with something. They chant to the rhythm of their shoes.)

 

Together: We’re the 7 brothers Hoffenstein,
We work together in our mine.
No one shirks and no one quits
(one at a time)
Mandel, Mertel, Werther, Wenzel,
Stoffel, Steffel and Fritz!

All for one and one for all,
Against a world that’s much too tall;
We use our brains, we use our wits,
(one at a time)
Mandel, Mertel, Werther, Wenzel,
Stoffel, Steffel and Fritz!

Together through the thick and thin,
The best of friends, the best of kin,
A brotherhood of opposites –
(one at a time)
Mandel, Mertel, Werther, Wenzel,
Stoffel, Steffel and Fritz!

(Mandel opens the door & goes inside; the others are behind him. He sees Snow White & comes out again, forcing the others back.)

Mandel: We seem to have company

OTHERS: (echoing him) Company? Company?? (etc.)

Mandel: Probably a thief — or a murderer –

OTHERS: (hub-bub of alarm) What ? No! oh — (etc.)

Mertel: (looking into the house) It looks like a girl –

OTHERS: A girl? A what? A who? (etc.)

Mertel: (looking again) She seems pleasant enough. (The others crowd to the door to peer in.)

Wenzel: Can she cook?

Werther: Is she somebody or just a peasant girl?

Stoffel: She may have lost her way.

Steffel; She’s gonna make more work for us.

Fritz: She’s – she’s – she’s awful pretty.

Others: Pretty?????

Mandel: Let me see –

Mertel: You’re right
