In the dictionary, under classic children’s story, it surely says “See ‘Snow White.’” Could there be a more universally well-known fairy tale?
“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest” — which the Sand Springs Community Theatre will put on later this month — is not your classic Snow White, though.
Adapted from the Brothers Grimm fairy tale by June Walker Rogers, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs of the Black Forest” has most of the same characters, albeit with different names. It is narrated by Time herself, and the show features talking animals and moving trees.
With a cast of nearly 30, plus crew, the Sand Springs Community Theatre production’s director, Troy Sartors, and his co-director and daughter, Merri Beth Purdin, would seemingly have their hands full.
“This is the largest cast I have directed, and even though many of them are young, they are doing amazingly well,” Sartors said.
