Performances are Friday, August 8 and Saturday, August 9 at 7 p.m. and Sunday, August 10 at 1 p.m. at West Central Area Secondary School in Barrett.

Based on the original story by the Brothers Grimm, Snow White originally premiered in 1987 and was Prairie Fire’s first production.

The production is a culmination of an annual week-long theater camp held at West Central Area Secondary School. This year’s registrants represent the communities of Alexandria, Farwell, Kensington, Miltona and more from across the Midwest.

Ninety campers ages 7-18 take on the roles of Snow White, the prince, the queen’s mirror and ravens, the seven dwarfs, the forest creatures, the spellbinders and the townspeople.

The cast is joined on stage by two professional actors from Prairie Fire. Jeremy Day will play the huntsman. He is also the managing director at Prairie Fire. Elizabeth Dunn is the evil queen. Day and Dunn co-directed this camp with staff member Greg Stowers. The project’s executive director and designer is Deborah Nelson Pick of Barrett.

Tickets are $9 for adults and $6 for those 18 years and younger. They are available at the door one hour prior to performances. Refreshments will be available prior to performances and at intermission.
