Oct. 14 - Oct. 31
This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? No. Wild? Yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.
This spontaneous, organic yet carefully scripted play was written by Greg Banks. He has worked all over the world from Singapore to Seattle as an actor, writer and director. He is also a collaborator of the national Children’s Theatre Company. The story line of Banks’ Snow White is a recognizable tale with all the characters of the original story; however, Snow White tells her own story while playing many of the roles.
Banks explains, “The story moves back and forth between the two actors. If maybe one feels the other isn’t portraying a character accurately, they’ll swap. At various times, both of them have a go at being the Stepmother. If Snow White fancies playing the Prince, then Four has to play Snow White!” And so begins a theatrical endeavor as Magik Theatre’s cast featuring Rosa Gardner and Bobby Tschoepe will collectively play all seven dwarves and a mix of other characters.
Banks’ extensive experience adapting classic stories for small casts (including the three-person production of Huck Finn, the four-person shows Robin Hood and Pinocchio, and the 5-person play The Jungle Book) makes him the “master of small-cast classics.”
