Unleash your inner beauty and kindness with Repertory Philippines’ Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs!
Who doesn’t know the classic fairy tale that got little girls looking at the mirror while asking, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” or little boys yodelling, “Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho, Heigh-ho.”
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a fairy tale with life lessons that transcend generations.
Repertory Philippines returns onstage with its own staging of Michael Valenti and Elsa Rael’s adaptation of this classic fairy tale — Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. But, Rep’s version is more than just a simple retelling of Snow White. It features an enthralling fusion of live music with mesmerizing choreography and classical ballet unfolding right before your very eyes.
Director Joy Virata, highlights the experience to kids and to the young-at-hearts who will watch this musical adaptation for the first time, “The story is of course the same as that of Disney Version but the songs and dialogue and the way it’s staged and choreographed is different. And it’s live. Kids like to be entertained. Those who will see it for the first time are always enthralled by seeing something that’s live. Theater is live entertainment,” Virata shares.
Featuring the story of a girl who was trapped by her stepmother, the Evil Queen, Snow White finds refuge through the help of seven little creatures – the seven dwarfs – who are known for each’s unique characteristics.
Snow White’s story is a montage of the many experiences a person can have in a lifetime — cruelty to an innocent, loss of home and family, security in newfound friends, and the triumph of good over wicked. “Snow White’s story shows that you can appeal to the good in everyone. You can (influence) people by being good,” Virata says.
Alternating for the role of Snow White are, Christine Flores, Alana Vicente, Becca Coates, and Dani Prieto (understudy). Bituin Escalante, Ring Antonio, Pam G, and Christine Flores (understudy) are alternating for the role of the Wicked Queen Stepmother, while and the dashing Hans Eckstein, Jos Jalbuena, and Jeff Flores share the role of the handsome prince/woodsman.
