Snowhite returns to Santa Monica Playhouse
The Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series of Santa Monica Playhouse will present the return of SNOWHITE, one of the most popular in its bewitching series of Rudie-DeCarlo musical fairy tales for young-at-heart audiences of all ages. SNOWHITE , a heart-warming tale of companionship, coming-of-age, and the magical bond between mothers and daughters, follows everyone's most beloved young heroine as she journeys to find herself, her mother, and her true destiny, aided by Seven Silly Companions and a Most Magical Mirror. Opens July 9, 2022, playing every Saturday and Sunday afternoon through August 28, 2022.
Brought to vibrant and colorful life by the acclaimed writer-director team of Evelyn Rudie and Chris DeCarlo, this delightfully original musical fantasy brings audiences together to help Snowhite, aided by Seven Companions (three twins plus one) and a magical mirror that appears and disappears at will. No evil Stepmother here, no shadowy forests or villainous potions; just a wondrously humorous and touching tale of friendship, dedication and discovery, as Snowhite, learns that love does, indeed, conquer all even though it can sometimes be found in the most unlikely places. Abundant audience participation adds to the merriment of this enchanting musical adventure.
Modeled on the original 1812 Brothers Grimm tale, SNOWHITE plays with the themes of the danger of stereotypes, the power of familial bonds, the importance of ethics and friendship, the meaning of commitment, and the value of tolerance and understanding. Beautifully-detailed Medieval costumes by award-winning designer Ashley Hayes and sparkling sets and special effects by James Cooper from the 1854 illustrations, add to the historical authenticity of this exciting interactive family-friendly production.
SNOWHITE features Taylor Bazos, Laura Bertrand, Noa Brenner, Tiffany Howell Haile, Audrey Montague, Cydne Moore, and Megan Yip. The production, one of fifteen original fairy tales that are part of the Santa Monica Playhouse Family Theatre Musical Matinee Series, cuts across the imaginary generation gap by providing an experience that the entire family can enjoy.
