Fall Showcase: Snow White by J. Michael Straczynski

Directed by Jacinda Baldwin-Gomez

Snow White

About the show:

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all? Well, we all know the reply to that, and soon we're caught up in the spell of this enchanting classic. The vain and wicked Queen seeks to destroy her rival in beauty. The Dwarfs are obstinate, generous, mean, kind, and totally appealing...

The Prince is a true Prince, sometimes foolish, always brave, and Snow White is as lovely and lovable as legend says. First rate adaptation with an exuberant spirit.
