A SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS
WHY IS THIS PLAY BEST FOR YOUR SCHOOL?
Written especially for young people to perform.
While you may find large cast plays from other publishers, most of those were originally written for adults or professional actors to perform. They often contain difficult dialogue, unfamiliar or complex language, and speeches too long for young children to memorize. They may even contain jokes, innuendos and subject matter that may not be appropriate for children.
Easy to understand and memorize.
Dialogue is simple, fresh, quick and humorous, keeping the action flowing without stops and starts between scenes. This keeps young people and young audiences engaged throughout the performance - no awkward pauses, no dead-time, no wiggles!
All children are involved throughout the performance. This builds confidence, promotes team spirit and eliminates rehearsal rowdiness. The audience is often asked to join in the fun, and action often spills into the aisles! All of our SCHOOL PLAYS give suggestions on how to divide up large parts (such as Snow White or Cinderella) among several performers so that no one child is the "star".
Familiar stories with upbeat endings.
The story line stays as close as possible to the familiar story the kids already know. While some authors feel the need to "improve" the story, our SCHOOL PLAYS stay as close to the familiar narrative as possible, making it easier for children - and your audience - to understand.
Feel free to edit! Go ahead and tape it!
Most publishers insist that no changes may be made to their scripts. We know that your goal is to engage every child in the most meaningful way and that your needs are unique. Cut, eliminate, re-assign lines, or add as much as you like! Also, there are no restrictions on video tapes. Parents want a tape or DVD to remember their child's big moment. Go ahead and tape away!
In the past few years we've seen a tremendous increase of confidence in the teachers we hear from. Most are finding it easier to let the process flow and worry less about the final product. I firmly believe that the experience will be best for all when you keep a few things in mind:
Free yourself from worry about whether or not it's "good". No one is paying big ticket prices; no one expects a Broadway success. The key to making this project meaningful is to put the emphasis on process; realize that rehearsal and practice are as much a part of the experience as the actual performance. Encourage fun and you will free the children from embarrassment and stress. If the kids can't learn the lines let them carry a script or use their own words to convey the character's message. If they seem to wander the stage, let them explore where they want to go - they might surprise you with a wonderful idea. In every aspect of the process give them the wings to create and think. Give them a comfortable, supportive place to go and their confidence and self-expression will soar!
Above all else, make sure you are having fun. If you've never directed a play before, don't worry. It's all just pretend -- you can't do it wrong! The quality of your experience is every bit as important as that of the children. You need the joy of self-expression too, that doesn't go away when we grow up. So give yourself a break. And when all else fails, laugh!
Thank you so much for choosing A Snow White Christmas. I hope you and your young friends have as much fun performing this play as I did writing it.

SNOW WHITE CHRISTMAS
from the toy shop, the Seven Elves make an amazing discovery!
NIN-COM-POOP: What's your name?
SNOW WHITE: I'm Snow White.
SNORES-A-LOT: She's pretty!
SOUR-PUSS: Out the door with you. Right now!
SNOW WHITE: Oh, please don't send me away. You see the Queen is after me...
WALL-FLOWER: Ah, the Queen! She's a mean old thing.
SNOW WHITE: Yes. If she catches me she'll keep the snow from falling and there won't be any Christmas in the forest.
A-CHOO: No Christmas?
CAPTAIN: Why that means...
GIGGLE-TOES: The little children won't get any of our toys.
NIN-COM-POOP: All that work for nothin'.
CAPTAIN: Just think of all the cryin' and fussin' on Christmas morning!
SNORES-A-LOT: Nobody'll get any rest I tell ya.
A-CHOO: Can she stay, Captain?
SOUR-PUSS: Nothin doin'! No way! Over my dead body! (Pauses, scratches his chin.) Unless...
ELVES & SNOW WHITE: Unless?
SOUR-PUSS: Unless she helps us decorate a Christmas Tree.
(SNOW WHITE tickles SOUR-PUSS under the chin.)
SNOW WHITE: I'll help you decorate the prettiest tree ever!
SOUR-PUSS: Aw, all right then. Better be pretty.
SNOW WHITE: And I'll fix you a Christmas supper.
GIGGLE-TOES: Oh boy, supper! What are we having?
SNOW WHITE: Everything you ever dreamed of. But you'll have to wash your hands.
(SNOW WHITE holds up her hands and indicates they should do likewise. She starts to leads them off...)
NIN-COM-POOP: Wash our hands? How do we do that?
SNOW WHITE: (Laughing.) Silly elf.
(SOUND CUE 10: Here We Go a' Chowin' Down [short intro]. ELVES sing as they exit in a line behind SNOW WHITE. Singing as they go off...)
Here we go a chowin' down
And eatin' up the spread!
Here we go devourin'
And chompin' on the bread!
What a treat is in store
We could hardly ask for more!
And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year!
(SOUND CUE ENDS. ELVES and SNOW WHITE exit. MIRROR enters.)
HAPPY: Meanwhile, back at the Queen's Castle...
(SOUND CUE #11. Wicked Queen.
CHORUS uses chimes to make a magical sound, a gong to announce the arrival of the QUEEN, who enters swooping with her cape on stage and stands before MIRROR [She brings box with her].)
QUEEN: Hah-ha! Now we'll see about Snow White's precious little Christmas. Mirror, mirror on the wall... Who's the fairest of them all?
(SOUND CUE ENDS.)
MIRROR: If I tell you, you'll break me.
QUEEN: Break you?! Of course I won't break you! Now answer at once! Who is the fairest of them all?
MIRROR: Promise you won't break me?
QUEEN: I promise, I promise, I promise! Now speak up!
MIRROR: You, my Queen, are fair, it's true. But Snow White Is fairer than you...
