The SAF Young People’s Theater is proud to present its sixth annual Parent/Kid play, Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs starring 10 students grades 3-6 and their parents on Thursday, September 26, 2019 at 6 p.m. The show is FREE and appropriate for the whole family.
Based on the Grimm fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs follows the beautiful princess, Snow White, who must flee her kingdom. Jealous of her stepdaughter’s beauty, the evil queen orders the huntsman to kill her so the queen can once again be the ‘fairest of them all.’ When he instead exiles Snow to the forest, she befriends forest animals and the titular seven dwarfs. The classic story follows with a handsome prince, an ugly crone and a tempting apple.
“The last couple of years, I have selected popular styles of theater, but always shows that were not well known; this year I decided to shake things up by selecting a production that is beloved and known by everyone. It'll be fun to bring such a classic fairy tale to life with these very talented kiddos and their rock star parents,” said director Leah Heidenreich.
The classic play stars Savannah and Traci Baize, Ansel and Lou Bartel, Stanley and Sal Birrittella, Cash and Jessica Fertig, Raft, Ryder and Ross Herzog, Scarlett and Paul Jones, Madeline Rae McConnell and Jessica Rae Arguelles-McConnell, Henry Deppen and Ronnie Palamar and Evan Stogner and Sarah Stogner.
After a handful of rehearsals with Heidenreich, the child actors are joined by their parents for one final rehearsal. The seasoned pros (the kids) take the lead roles and the parents take the supporting roles.
“The annual parent/kid play is always one of the highlights of my year. Watching the parents interact with their kiddos on stage is such a fun and unique experience. I have some pretty hilarious ideas of how to utilize the parents this year, and I'm excited to see the public's reaction!" said Heidenreich.
The show will be performed just ONCE on Thursday, September 26, at 6 p.m. at the historic Sheridan Opera House. A hat will be passed at the end of the show for donations to the Young People’s Theater.
Since 1999, the historic Sheridan Opera House has been home to Young People’s Theater, a diverse and flourishing center for young thespians, enrolling more than 250 children between the ages of 2 and 18 each year.
