“We've had such fun working on this classic fairy tale and bringing it to life with some contemporary twists,” said guest director, Natalie Rae Wass. “I'm sure the brothers Grimm would approve of this production made with a lot of love and a lot of laughs right here in New Richmond, Wisconsin.”
Raised by a wicked and vain Queen, the sweet Princess Snow White is taken into the forest to be murdered. However, the Hunter takes pity on her so she flees and finds refuge in the home of the seven dwarves. When the Queen discovers that Snow White is still alive, she transforms herself into an old hag and brings a poisonous apple to the young girl. True love’s kiss wakes Snow White from her deep slumber. Together, Snow White and the dwarves return to the palace to attend a colorful masquerade ball and to give the evil Queen her comeuppance.
