'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest' opens Friday

Lori Nickel, Montgomery Messenger

The talented actors of Curtain Call Theatre are set to take the stage for the production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest, written by June Walker Rogers. The play opens at 7:30 p.m. at the New Prague Middle School auditorium on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 21-22, and continues through next weekend for performances on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28-29.

This loose adaptation of this Grimm Brothers Fairy Tale has all the characters you love: Snow White, the seven funny little men, the absent-minded king, his new wife who is part queen and part witch (but more funny than frightening), her servant, the frantic Maid Dim Witty, and the handsome and conceited Prince.

There are some new characters, too, created for this dramatic version -- Snow White's animal friends and the fascinating Miss Time, whose father, Father Time, started the whole Once Upon a Time business.

So although many of the character names are different, the story line is still about the evil queen's desire to get rid of Snow White because she is fairer. The Queen is still evil, Snow White is still innocent, and the dwarfs are still little people. In this production, however, Snow White's father is an absent-minded old man forgetful of the most memorable things. Snow White's neighbor is Prince Good-Hearted and her crush, and her closest friends are a group of animals that protect her from her own innocence. And although the names and actions of the dwarfs are most different, they are very loveable.

This two-act play is directed by Andy Velishek, a veteran stage actor who has appeared in several Curtain Call productions.

I would recommend families and children of all ages to come see the show
