'Snow White' slated for Saturday

Students at New Richmond Middle School are busy applying the final touches to their fall play, "Snow White," which will be performed for the public on Nov. 3.

Though most know the classic story of "Snow White," this modern take tells the story from another perspective -- the witch's.

Orphaned as a young girl, the witch (played by Mackenzie Rabitoy) longs for a friend and finds a companion in a magical mirror (played by Madeline Hatch) who becomes her best friend and declares the witch fairest of them all -- until Snow White (played by Sadira Burgess) comes along.

This play is a tale about beauty, friendship and happily-ever-afters, with a twist.

The cast includes appearances by Rabitoy, Hatch, Burgess, Aubrey Williamson, Taylor Kuchenmeister, Kerrigan Storie, Madeline Mcain, Mackenzie Moon, Isaac Olson, Brooke Meyer, Houka Moua, Brandon Gaspord, Caroline Kling, Emily Montreal, Abby Utgaard, Kaazy Vhaa, Kinsey Novotne, Lauren Besile, Chloe Marrier, Magi Blackmon and Aubrey Berning. The crew includes Coral Gronquist, Emily Boucher, Haley Herburt, Jade Williams, Lauryn Sund, Mallory Ballard, Lauryn Belisle, Hannah Meisner, Felicia Kwak, Magi Blackmon, Sammy Thompson, Shelby Krueger, Savannah Lambert, Emilee Rogers, Megan Benning, Hannah Maller, Turner Williamson, Oscar Alanis, Ethan Rutledge, Howard Knutson, Declan Gubrud, Vivian Gin, Savannah Lambert, Sammy Thompson, Caitlyn Curtis, Emilee Rogers, Maria Flynn, Abby Modesette, Emily Manahan, Shelby Krueger, Kaitlyn Wilson, Mikayla Ennis and Katie Chwialkowski. Teacher Damian Freyre-McAdams acts as the drama club's advisor.

"Snow White" was written by Marjorie Sokoloff. The middle school's public performance is slated for 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, at the middle school auditorium. There is no cost to attend the play; however, students will be collecting canned food items at the door. For more information, call the middle school at 715-243-7471.
