Children will stage 'Snow White' Jan. 12
The Missoula Children's Theatre will give two performances of "Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs on Jan. 12 at the Sheldon Theatre. In this original adaptation of the classic fairy tale, the young princess finds herself in peril when her stepmother, the Queen, is told by her Magic Mirror that the princess is fairer than she is.
Aided by her the Henchmen and a band of evil Bats, the Queen plots to get rid of Snow White. But Snow White escapes with help from Witless the Woodsman, and finds a home with the Seven Dwarfs.
When the Queen learns of Snow White's whereabouts, she attempts to poison Snow White. But the Queen's evil plans are thwarted when Snow White's fearless Forest Friends, her father King Backwards, the Seven Dwarfs and the Prince come to her rescue.
Local youth make up the cast, led by the professional touring, teaching artists of MCT. They will rehearse all week after school leading up to the performances at 3 and 5:30 p.m.
