White as Snow: Giveaway of "Snow White" at the ACT 3! Festival for Children

When the Brothers' Grimm first published the tale of a beautiful princess and her encounter with seven vertically-challenged individuals, they did not expect the story to be a resounding success the world over; with numerous adaptations of the tale, not least by the great animation spinmaker Walt Disney. Indeed the German tale of Snow White and the Seven Dwalves has been retold countless times, with several modern adaptations hitting the big screen in recent years.

ACT 3 International has chosen to bring in a Canadian version of the tale for this year's ACT 3! Festival for Children. Elaborates the Artistic Director of ACT 3 International Ruby Lim-Yang, the festival is imbued with themes that are "relevant for today's children", but yet do not "lose sight" of the "artistry, craftsmanship and beauty of live theatre, as well as the fields of visual and literary arts".

Snow White, to be run daily from 24 to 29 May 2016, will be produced by the “Nearly World-Famous” DuffleBag Theatre. The company has been performing since 1992 and is based in Toronto, performing over 600 shows a year across Canada, the US and the rest of the world. The group is known for their extremely interactive retellings of original fairytales and Shakespearean classics.

ACT 3's media release observes:

"There is never a dull moment at a DuffleBag production, where new adaptations of fairy tales and Shakespearean classics meet plenty of humour and with a dramatic twist at the end. Audiences are always invited to join in the action and feel the excitement of living a fairy tale. Armed with an original script that is sharp, well-paced and full of surprises, the talented actors are very adept at changing characters and engaging a young audience."
