Snow White, by Greg Banks, turns this old fairy tale completely on its head…Why take the kids to see the show? First off, it’s funny. Like, really funny. I took my three kids, ages 12, 8 and 7, and they were busting up throughout the entire play.”
– Parent Map, Seattle

A “Once Upon a Time” tale re-imagined for twice as much fun! Not your traditional Snow White, this clever twist on the beloved fairy tale is a two-actor take that’s irresistibly playful and oh-so smart. With lightning quick switches, the duet morphs into 14 characters, retelling (along with a song or three!) the story of Snow White, all seven dwarfs, the prince, queen and her madcap crew. Hilarious and charming, this ingenious Snow White nudges the classic toward a more timely interpretation.

Award-winning writer, actor and comedian, Aurora Browne, best known as a co-creator and star of CBC’s Baroness von Sketch Show directs a merrymaking double cast, featuring comedian and actor Ken Hall (The Umbrella AcademyPeople of Earth), Amanda Cordner (Sort Of, Baroness von Sketch Show), JD Leslie in her YPT debut, and actor, improv artist (and YPT Artistic Director) Herbie Barnes. Hall and Barnes will play all seven dwarfs and more, while Cordner and Leslie will play Snow White – rotating performances throughout the run.
