Stage Door Players in downtown White Cloud is proud to announce the Children’s Theater performance of Snow White by Tim Kelly, Directed by Beverly Guikema and Produced by Renee Krueger. There will be four performances beginning December 1 & 2 and 8 & 9 at 7pm.
Snow White had a casting call for all ages October 2nd and 3rd. Over 20 children of all ages came to the auditions over two consecutive nights. There were spots available for 18 actors and actresses and all places were filled with Newaygo County children from four to 18 years old. Jeanne Bock is playing the part of the Crone. Jeanne is a seasoned actress and well, her age is a secret.
The wonderful world of the Brothers Grimm is brought to life in this delightful adaptation of Snow White. All our friends are here – the lovely Princess Snow White played by Rachel Moore the mischievous Seven Dwarfs played by Christian Burns, Gabriella Dakin, Makenna Pierce, Wyatt Karnes, Autym Groenke, Wynter Groenke and Ace Stackhouse. The Prince will be played by Spencer White the Huntsman played by Keagan Kailing and the evil Queen played by Haley Rae Wireman.
Wait until you meet the hilarious palace Cat played by Charlotte Karnes and the Enchanted Vixen played by Natalie Walenga. In this version the Magic Mirror, played by Sophie Kehr not only talks – it walks! Shiver and shake as the scheming Queen transforms herself into various personalities like Esmeralda played by Summer Groenke, and an old withered Crone played by Jeanne Bock, so horrible even the Queen herself is terrified! Don’t forget the poisonous apple waiting for our heroine. Laughs and chases through the forest and more than enough stage magic to light up the box office will delight all ages in the audience.
This is one of the most popular tales of all time and it never fails to enchant and amaze! Stage Door Players welcomes you and your entire family to join us at one or all of our performances of Snow White! Tickets are $5 each or parents and their children for $15.
