Snow White

713_snow_whiteBook, Music, & Lyrics by Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark

 A modern retelling of the legend originally published by the Brothers Grimm, this musical version focuses on Snow White’s quest to become a strong, self-determined woman, who doesn’t do housework for the dwarfs. In this show, there is a colorful new batch of “dwarfs,” who are ironically quite tall: Enrico Caruso, Christopher Columbus, Confucius, Sigmund Freud, Martin Luther King Jr., Merlin the Magician and Scrooge – each of whom, with their rich and varied song styles, has some wise lesson to impart to Snow White and the audience, the most stirring among these, Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream.” Then there is the vain Prince, reduced to a deus ex machina here, and the self-absorbed Queen Narcissus who in this retelling repents her evil ways.

 Suitable for all ages                    Running Time: 60 minutes
