1 Act, Book Musical, Rated G
Kennedy Center Version (2010
This family-friendly musical comedy re-imagines the Brothers’ Grimm tale with a high-school drama team desperate to win the local thespian competition.
Originally commissioned by The Kennedy Center, Snow White, Rose Red (And Fred) is written by the incomparable duo who brought you the charming Dear Edwina.
When the overeager, yet well-meaning, captain of the drama team picks the lesser known Brothers Grimm tale of Snow White, Rose Red, the rest of the club fears the worst. But with the two leads played by popular cheerleader best friends Melinda and Melissa, what could go wrong? Enter Fred, a last-minute understudy so charming he sparks a rivalry both onstage and off. Teamwork and collaboration ultimately prevail in this hilarious and fresh musical comedy.
This is the perfect title for young audiences. Younger students will also love playing out this story; portraying the funny, wacky characters. Educators will appreciate the show's minimal set and costume requirements.
