With some captivating and downright humorous twists and turns which hardly detracted from the original fascination with this tale spun by the Grimm Brothers, audiences were entertained by the vivacious and larger-than-life actors, rap dancers and singers who poured their hearts into performing at their very best.
The show opened with siblings Peggy Sue and Josh arguing that the thing called 'love at first sight' was really as believable as it was made out to be. Together with their mother, they embarked on a narrative that carried the audience along to the ultimate 'happily-ever after ending' like in fairy tales.
There was a remarkably strong performance from the Evil Queen who dug deep into her morbid bag of tricks to wipe Snow White off the face of the earth, keen on ensuring that she remains the fairest in the land. Also notable was the performance from the DNR Reps whose overzealousness in carrying out their duties as government agents brought out cheers from the engrossed audience. The Year 3 musical interludes were by Anu as well as dance moves choreographed by Romena, Nadeeka and Erika added lively scenes full of colour and movement to the successful evening. Furthermore, the seven quirky but kind dwarves brought a breath of fresh air and their act was so brilliant that it rubbed off on their protégé, Snow White who was unfazed when there was a momentary power outage in the auditorium as she daintily piped out her lines.
Director Fazla has accomplished a tremendous task this term; a task she is set to complete yet again as rehearsals start for the Year 5/6 Production later on in the school year. This was a performance to remember from a wonderful, enthusiastic and dedicated cast which consisted Year 3 and 4 pupils taking part in bringing the tale to life at the British School in Colombo.
