Based on the familiar tale by the Brothers Grimm, the play tells how Snow White, supposedly disposed of by the wicked queen, finds her way to a happy glen and the home of seven friendly dwarfs. A deadly apple, wielded by the queen, casts her into a deep sleep. She is revived just in time, and, with her prince, lives… Well, come see for yourself.
Directing the cast is highly respected and talented actor/director, Chris McVey, a Theatre Bristol veteran. He is supported by crew Sarah McCall, T.J. Voorhees, Lindsay Marshall, Camille Gray, Natasha Trombly, Sharon Flake, and Nicholas Thompson.
Grace Glover stars as the beautiful Snow White, the Evil Queen Brangomar is played by Hannah Crawford, Witch Hex, Brangomar’s accomplice, is played by Lee Anne Hitch, and the Mirror is voiced by long-time Theatre Bristol veteran Michael Locke. The Huntsman is played by Jacob Alvis, returning to the Theatre Bristol stage after performances in Anne of Green Gables and Miracle on 34th Street. The charming Prince Florimond is played by Mason Johnson, and James Altman makes his debut on the Theatre Bristol stage as Sir Dandiprat, the meticulous chamberlain.
What can you say about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs that has not already been said? As I sat down to write this, I thought of the lessons the story still teaches us even today, of love, friendship, caring for one another, and things we need to stay away from, like jealously.Yes, this story is a timeless classic, so how do you take it and make it something new and exciting? Shoot, that’s easy! You take 25 really talented people and let them tell the story. I am sure you will all enjoy the energy they give in each and every role, and the beautiful smiles that have made this production a real treat for me to be involved in.I could not have done this alone; It takes team work from a great group of people. The unsung heroes like Lindsey, Sarah, TJ, Camille, Sharon, Suzanne, Nicholas, and Natasha. “I couldn’t do this without you, you all make me look like I know what I’m doing!!” I cannot thank you enough. Also, to the Board of Directors from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for keeping Cathy’s dream alive…Now sit back and enjoy the show!
