Run TimeAround 50 minutes. [Estimated!]
MusicNone.
StyleOne act comedy play for kids. It has leanings towards a British pantomime (in that some of the characters 'break the fourth wall' to interact with the audience), but it doesn't have some other elements - so make up your own mind. Anyway, it's funny.
SynopsisWhen King Benedict decides to take a new wife, life for his beautiful daughter, the Princess Snow White, takes a turn for the worse.
The evil Queen Dragomira is consumed by jealousy and acquires a magic mirror which, she hopes, will confirm her as the 'fairest in the land'. Unfortunately for Dragomira the mirror, in the form of its human 'extension kit', can only tell the truth and Snow White's fate is sealed. The young princess is cast out into the forest to die.
Can the interventions of a group of inept robbers (they used to be dwarves, but they grew) and an even less ept prince save the day?
(Well, this is a fairy tale, so the answer is, at the very least, 'probably'!)
