Play Production Camp – "SNOW WHITE: THE MELODRAMA!"

Cottonwood School (0640 SW Bancroft Street)

Boo for the villain, cheer for the hero, and sigh for the heroine!  This play takes an hilarious and outrageous turn on the classic Snow White story, all within the zany style of comedic melodrama. “Snow White: The Melodrama!” is heavy on the jokes and encourages audience participation!  The play is full of whacky characters: a Prince that speaks in spoonerisms; a wise-cracking mirror; comical dwarves that include Whiney, Hyper, Corny, and Slowpoke; two clueless Huntsman; and many more! The students perform their play on the evening of the last day of the camp.  Prior experience in theater classes or shows is recommended.  Click here to learn more about our instructors.
