Theatre Junkies Anonymous is adventuring into the dark woods with Snow White, the evil queen and the iconic seven dwarves in a unique adaptation of the Grimm Brother’s Snow White, at the UFV North Campus Performance Theatre May 22 – 25.

Directed by local actor and director Megan Mackenzie, this production is based on the Grimm Brother’s tale, but was adapted for the stage by Thomas Smith and Dylan Schroeder, and showcases the talent of 21 local actors ranging in age from eight to 30 years old.

“Our adaptation is one of a kind,” says Mackenzie. “All of the iconic characters we know from the Disney classic are present, but their personalities and individual stories are different. This production is a colorful adventure from start to finish and will have you on the edge of your seats, holding your breath and wondering what will happen next.”

Taking on the role of Snow White is local actor Natasha Thompson. Thompson is a current student in the UFV Theatre Department Program and was last seen onstage with Theatre Junkies in their sold out production of A Christmas Carol. Thompson is a 2009 Abbotsford Arty Award recipient for her work in theatre. Langley actor Rachael Mah, takes on the vain and mysterious role of the evil queen, while Abbotsford actor Eric Bates takes up arms as Prince Charming.

Other local actors in the ensemble include: Connie Bahnman, Sylvia Braun, Kevin Hegeman, Patrick Jolicoeur, Gabriel Kirkley, Celina Lewis, Ethan Lyftogt, Rebecca Mackenzie, Madison McArthur, Matthew McLean, Nada Moorthy, Lucy Mulder, Chelsea Perkins, Joshua Robinson, Yvonne Spuls, Jenna Veenbaas, Emily Werner and Terrell Zacharias. This show is a family friendly production, suitable for ages 3+, and runs approximately 2 hours. Theatre Junkies is committed to producing theatre that will be meaningful and memorable for all ages.
