Snow White 

Shakespeare By The Sea’s highly-original take on the classic fairy tale is fun for the whole family.

Do conjoined twins count as one person? Is Windex poisonous? Is Patrick Swayze an effective life model? These are but a few of the questions raised by SBTS's highly original take on Snow White. Halifax has come to expect catchy music, zany antics and clever pop culture references from this company's family shows, and Snow White delivers. Kathryn McCormack is delightful as the sweetly gullible princess. Tom Gordon Smith charms as the not-so-manly prince and Simon Rainville gets brays of laughter as his horse-like-but-human sidekick. But it's Kimberley Cody that steals the show as the appearance-obsessed Evil Queen who sings, struts and schemes her way to an ignominious end. The humour is pitched to several levels, making this show perfect summer fun for both children and adults.
