Kaleidoscope Theatre is putting a funny new twist on a classic tale this year.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be presented in the fashion of a traditional British Pantomime, with singing, dancing, double entendre, mistaken identity and a topsy-turvy makeover of the classic tale.

Following the structure of the fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm, Snow White finds herself hiding in the woods from the Evil Queen and is helped by a group of seven dwarves. However, in Kaleidoscope’s production new faces also come to Snow White’s aid, including Nurse Tickle, Simple Simon and Prince Valiant.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs takes place at the McPherson Playhouse Dec. 27 to 29. Tickets are $45 for adults and $25 for students and children.

In its 42nd year, Kaleidoscope offers productions to help youth people think critically about the world and engage in constructive self-expression.
