Merlyn Productions Theatre Company will present “SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS” as a children’s theatre special for Spring Break, March 24 to 28 at the Forrest Nickerson Theatre (285 Pembina Hwy).
“For over 30 years, countless children have enjoyed this enchanting play, filled with humour and audience participation!
“This faithful rendition of the classic fairy tale is told with only three performers: featuring Snow White, the wicked Queen, and a storyteller who becomes the Magic Mirror, the Huntsman, and the Prince, among others.
“Every young audience member becomes involved in the action – some lucky children get invited onstage as dwarfs – and you can meet the characters after a happy ending!”
Geared for ages 3 and up, this unique adaptation by MAURICE BERGER runs approximately 50 minutes.
Directing the play is Merlyn Productions Artistic Director JOHN CHASE. Mr Chase is a veteran of theatre for young audiences, having served as cast and staff at Fantasy Theatre for Children for 20 seasons, and produced classic children’s theatre titles in Winnipeg for the past nine years.
Featured in the all-local cast are CORA FAST of Grunthal, Manitoba assuming the title role of Snow White, HEATHER FORGIE reprising the part of the wicked Queen, and DANIEL GILMOUR returning as the “story teller” who portrays five key characters.
Stage managed by HOPE FIGUEROA, with the original scenic design from FANTASY THEATRE FOR CHILDREN and an updated lighting design by DARRYL AUDETTE.
