Snow White | May 4-June 8, 2024 (Saturdays)

Written & Directed by Chris Stockton
In co-production with Stage West for Kids

A travelling troupe of performers ventured out to perform all over the world. They had planned for every story they knew… or at least they thought so. When Lasso chooses Snow White as the story they would like to perform, it becomes very clear, very quickly that no one else knows the tale. A whirlwind adventure begins with a princess, an evil queen, a poisoned apple, a magic mirror, seven small helpers and a prince ready to break a sleeping spell. How hard could it be for four performers to take on a story they’ve never heard of?

Characters:
4 members of a travelling troupe of players. Each of the players is gender non-specific and the troupe create plays from materials they can find around them and within their magical trunks.

Lasso: Self-appointed leader of the group and the founding member
Zingra: Newest and youngest member of the group.
Soli: Super creative but not always the first one to catch on
Coco: Willing to take on anything and try anything but with a hint of sarcasm.
