Roald Dahl's Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs is a safe bet for a winning end of term performance. The expandable cast list includes starring parts for twelve players with dozens of opportunities to shine in more roles both off-stage and on. And everyone can be part of the singing chorus.
Thousands of children have taken part in school performances of this riotously funny adaptation of Roald Dahl's irreverent twist on the traditional tale.
A recent review in Music Teacher said:
'It is very difficult to pinpoint an aspect of performance which these musical packages do not address...(These are) completely foolproof musicals, which could be used and adapted by the most inexperienced of directors...undoubtedly an inspired resource'.
As with every one of these great Roald Dahl musicals, Snow White is based on an orchestral commission by the Roald Dahl Foundation. The concert work, from which the schools' musical is derived is by Eleanor Alberga, and schools can use the extracts provided from the orchestral work to enhance their performances.
To present a public performance of this musical you will need a performance licence. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01484 668 148 and request a Performance Licence Application Form.
