Beck Center Youth Theater to Present SNOW WHITE'S ADVENTURES This Fall
Beck Center Youth Theater presents the first production of their 2017-2018 season, Snow White's Adventures, October 27-29, 2017, in the Mackey Theater.
Show times are 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, October 27 and 28, and 3 p.m. on Sunday, October 29. A special student matinee will take place at 10 a.m. on Thursday, October 26. Tickets are now on sale by calling 216.521.2540 x10 or visiting beckcenter.org.
Snow White's adventures are only just beginning when an evil Queen imprisons every maiden in the village. Along the way, she'll meet a less-than-heroic-prince, a wise cracking mirror, seven unique individuals...and even lumberjacks! Will Snow White ultimately rescue the captured maidens? Find out more in this exciting re-imagining of the beloved children's fairy tale!
With a cast of 42 Beck Center students ages 7 to 16, this family-friendly production is written and directed by Russel Stich. "While audiences may be familiar with the characters and the basic story, we hope to keep them laughing with some unexpected surprises and new characters added into the mix," remarked Stich. Associate Director of Youth Theater Education Jonathan Kronenberger added ""We are so lucky to have not one, but two, talented playwrights on our faculty, and represented in our 2017-18 season, so it is exciting to share this unique, reimagining of the Snow White tale with our audiences, giving them an opportunity that few other people will experience!"
