Spring Production: THE SNOW WHITE VARIETY SHOW
By Brian A Taylor
All the fun of just about every TV-show genre you can imagine is jam-packed into this wild and fast-paced comedy! Your audience becomes the live studio audience on a talk show, Real Talk with Fairytale Legends, where the seven dwarves tell the story of Snow White as the Fairytale Players bring it to life. As each new dwarf takes a turn telling part of Snow White’s famous story in his or her own unique voice, the players’ re-enactment shifts to match the style and personality of that particular dwarf. At any given moment, the story can be anything — romance, comedy, home improvement show, suspense, Western, epic poetry, mystery, cooking show, stand-up routine, or blockbuster action movie! There’s even a “Miss Fairest of Them All” beauty pageant! It all culminates in a mad-dash ending of fast-changing genres that sets the record straight on Snow White’s happily-ever-after. With extremely flexible casting options, very simple staging, and optional hilarious scripted commercial breaks, this variety show spoof of the fairytale classic literally has something for everyone!

The purpose is not only to present a theatrical piece, but to present an opportunity for students to glorify God through their gifts and talents.
Through work on stage and backstage, students develop leadership skills, teamwork, confidence, and a servant’s heart.
A play truly is a sum of all the parts. Excellence is expected in order for the finished production to be a success. And it is so much fun!!
On stage, actors develop their tools— their voices, bodies, and imaginations to clothe the pages of the script in flesh.
Backstage opportunities abound working on costumes, makeup, hair, sets, props, the technical art of sound, lights, video, and crew—the unseen movers who transform the stage throughout the show.
