So often, youth shows tend to treat kids as incapable of engaging with layered characters or tricky themes. But in my time working with kids, I’ve found that our students understand these concepts so long as they are given the honest opportunity to engage with them. So when I first wrote this Snow White script five years back, I sought to portray good and evil as less obvious than fairy tales often make them. Good people aren’t always nice. Nice people aren’t always good. Love and hate can be related, rather than opposed.
Sprinkled with updated pop and classic songs, our journey back to the world of Snow White five years after our first foray was engaging and great fun. And this time around, we had 298 students and 12 class sections, making it our largest class season to date (as of Fall 2017).
