Encore Stage & Studio’s productions have been on our family calendar regularly over the past year. We always look forward to the shows as they are consistently fun and entertaining. The best part is that my daughter gets to watch other kids perform and that seems to really captivate her attention. They also include many of the classic fairy tales in their schedule which are perfect for small children. This past weekend we saw the musical adaptation of Snow White come alive on the Encore stage.
Snow White is a beautiful young princess who lives with her jealous stepmother, the Queen. When the Queen discovers that Snow White is truly “the fairest of them all,” she devises a plan to continue her reign permanently. After being banished to the woods, Snow White happens upon seven new friends that give her a place to call home.

The cast included 22 young students who put on a very impressive performance!
After the show, we attended Snow White’s Winter Ball where we were able to talk to the cast members, enjoy treats, and make a couple of fun crafts.
Aren’t the seven dwarfs just adorable? They sang a very catchy song called “Work, Work, Work” during the show that my daughter is still singing at home now!
The Vixen was another favorite character of Clara’s.
The caramel apple station was a big hit!
At the craft stations the kids decorated magic mirrors, crowns, and dwarf masks.
