SUMMER MUSICAL PROGRAM-The Rockin Tale of Snow White

The tale of Snow White has never felt so fresh and new with this funny adaptation that will make even the most jaded among us laugh out loud!  New characters and comedic twists come to life as a modern mom reads the Brothers Grimm tale to her restless children.  In addition to the well-known cast of the kind princess, evil queen, multiple dwarves and the morally conflicted Huntsman, this musical introduces us to some fresh new faces such as rhyme-happy ladies-in-waiting and a stick-in-the-mud governmental representative out to ruin everyone’s good time!  (He nabs the Huntsman for attempting to kill a wild pig without a hunting license and fines a dwarf for picking a bouquet of state flowers!)  Musical styles of all genres fuse to create a rousing mixture of hip-hop, rock and roll, doo wop and more!  With its tongue-in-cheek humor, catchy songs and an unbelievably flexible cast that can absorb a “cast of thousands,” this show is a must-have for anyone wanting to give scores of children the joys of being in a musical.

More details will be available at a later date.
