‘Snow White Variety Show’ at VUHS Saturday

VERGENNES — On Saturday, March 25, the Ferrisburgh Children’s Theater cast of 27 students will present “The Snow White Variety Show,” by Brian D. Taylor at the Vergennes Union High School auditorium. The performance begins at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at the door and are $6 for adults and $3 for children. Production rights are courtesy of Pioneer Drama Services.
Come for a fast-paced comedy, as the audience becomes the live studio audience on the talk show, Real Talk with Fairytale Legends. Host Herb Hyberbole and his guests, the Seven Dwarves, retell the story of the fairest of them all, Snow White. As each dwarf enters, their own perspective on how the story unfolds becomes evident.
Enter the cast of the “Fairytale Players” as the dwarves narrate and the players act out the story bringing the tale to life. As each dwarf takes a turn telling their version of Snow White’s famous story, in his or her own unique voice, the Fairytale Players’ acting shifts to match the style and personality of that particular dwarf. At any given moment, the story can be romantic, funny, suspenseful, the Wild West with a flair, poetic, mysterious, rowdy or nothing but the facts!
As each version unfolds, a cast of your favorite fairy tale characters, some with a modern twist, participate in the retelling. Enter the three bears, Goldilocks, the Big Bad Wolf, witches, trolls, an ogre, CSI Dwarves, the king, the prince and more for a narrative of the most unorthodox version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarves!
In the end the “real” Snow White joins the talk show as a guest, the Evil Queen gets her due and there is a surprise ending to this happily ever after tale! Real Talk with Fairytale Legends would not be complete without its very own announcer, applause guy, and fairytale commercial breaks!
The Ferrisburgh Children’s Theater is in its 17th year and is a twenty-week after school program for Ferrisburgh students in fifth- and sixth-grades. The primary goal of the program is to give young students a chance to experience the sense of self-confidence and joy that comes from working with a group of peers to put together a theatrical production.
The program includes playing drama games, learning basic acting skills, rehearsing the play and working on costuming, set design and construction, and prop making. The program is a volunteer effort and is funded through ticket sales, donations, and generous grants from the Ferrisburgh Central School PTO and Neat Repeats in Middlebury.
