Snow White and the 22 Dwarfs - a fun-packed Christmas play for school children at elementary, middle and high school.
This is intended as a fun, easy to produce play - cast size (30) easily adapted up or down by just adding on or taking off a few dwarfs! Which isn't to say they don't play a vital part - this Snow White is definitely a force to be reckoned with!
Running duration - about 10 to 15 minutes - or more if optional music suggestions are included (Our House - Crosby Stills Nash and Young - about a welcome addition to someone's house, adds a nice dose of irony to a play about a squatter/home-wrecker!)
Snow White and the Twenty Two Dwarfs .... yes, there are a few more than usual, but with good reason! ... is a rather different version of the well known fairy tale. This Snow White is certainly no angel - squatter, home wrecker, glutton - and she proves more than a match for the wicked queen. Luckily the dwarfs have reinforcements to hand (what did I say about there being a good reason for the extra number of dwarfs?!) and so there is a happy ending - for everyone but the prince!
This is the second of a set of Christmas plays (The first :"Christmas Spirit - The Conversion of Mrs Scrooge" - about a grumpy old teacher and full of terrible jokes!) available from www.plays-r-ussell.com the writer's website. Until recently Sue Russell (playwright) has focused her writing on curriculum-based material (mainly Social Studies and PSHCE i.e. Anti-bullying and raising self esteem); but her 2009-2010 'mission' is to produce an "Assembly/Class Play a week' for the whole school year! For collection so far, see Key Dates on her website.
