Auditions are Aug. 22 and Aug. 29 for a new adaptation of Snow White by Chicago playwright Kathleen Coombs. Coombs is a writer, director, composer, and performer.
Known throughout the kingdom for her beauty, Queen Genevieve rules the kingdom of Alarica with an iron fist and icy heart. Much like the rest of the castle, Princess Snow White has always followed her stepmother’s rules. After all, she is much too sweet and simple to question Genevieve’s demands -- or at least that’s what everyone keeps telling her. But when Snow White is awakened to the consequences of her stepmother’s tyranny, she reveals herself as the ultimate threat to Genevieve’s reign as queen. This retelling of the classic Grimm fairytale explores the darkness of jealousy while bringing to light what really makes us beautiful.
Auditions are from 4 to 7 p.m. both nights and are for ages 7 and up (adults welcome) at the Orphan Girl Theatre, 316 W. Park St. (through the Washington St. entrance).
Snow White will be directed by Artistic Director Jackie Freeman, and will run on the Orphan Girl Theatre stage Oct. 17-27.
