The Community Theatre's Sunday Kids Club series continues when Gingerbread Players and Jack perform Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, an original version of the classic tale of a young princess who is ordered killed by her stepmother, the jealous new queen. Abandoned in the forest, Snow White takes up residence with seven little men who are captivated by her beauty and who protect her against the wicked queen and her magic mirror. When it appears that the queen finally triumphs, it will be the kiss of a handsome prince that will save the day. (This event, originally slated for Sunday, Jan. 23 was rescheduled due to the blizzard.)
Snow White features a cast of 11 and boasts a score written by Broadway composer Michael Valenti and a book written by award-winning children's playwright Elsa Rael. The play is performed in the Broadway style to live musical accompaniment against a fully realized setting.
Gingerbread Players and Jack, founded in 1964, is one of the oldest professional theatre companies performing exclusively for children. The company is a charter member of the Producers' League of Theatre for Young Audiences and a charter signatory of the Actors' Equity Association Theatre for Young Audiences Agreement.
