Children's theater to present spoof of Snow White
Three dozen students in grades K-10 of the Paynesville Public Schools will present the play, The True Story of Snow White?, in the auditorium at the high school on Friday and Saturday this week. |
On Friday night, the play will be at 7 p.m., and on Saturday the play will be at 1:30 p.m.
Members of the junior Pirouette danceline are (front to back) Baylee Lahr, Rachel McCloud (hidden), Amelia Malling, Paige Schmitt, Gina Coakley, Ivy Nelson, Leah Wander, and Anna Currens.
The children's mini theater, which is being staged again through Community Education, has relied for years on professional actors for the script, costumes, and lead actors. This year, the production is all local, with directors Colleen Pelton and Sue Teicher writing the script as well as directing the play.
The story, called The True Story of Snow White?, is a spoof of the traditional children's tale. In addition to the well-known characters of the evil queen, Snow White, and the seven dwarfs (who are on strike against the queen), the play features Santa Claus and his reindeer, a junior danceline, Old MacDonald and his barnyard animals, and a group of cowboys and cowgirls.
Each cast member has at least one speaking line and also takes part in at least one dance or song.
Admission to the play is $3 for adults, $1 for students, and free for preschoolers.
