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.
Musical styles of all genres fuse to create a rousing mixture of hip-hop, rock and roll, doo wop and more! Produced by Millie Peterson, book by Barbara Lennon, music by Bill Francoeur and lyrics by Bill Francoeur and Barbara Lennon.
