Two children's theater productions performed by students enrolled in summer theater camps will be offered at The Phipps Center for the Arts.
"The Snow White Variety Show," by Brain D. Taylor, featuring young actors in grades 7-9, will be performed Friday, July 19, at noon and 2 p.m., with limited availability, as well as Saturday and Sunday, July 20 and 21, at 2 p.m. In this wild and fast-paced comedy, Snow White's famous story is told on the TV show "Real Talk with Fairytale Legends." At any given moment, the story can be anything - romance, comedy, home improvement show, suspense, Western, epic poetry, mystery, cooking show, stand-up routine, or blockbuster action movie.

Soon taken by the Snow Queen, Kay forgets his happy life. Gerda must go on her own journey to find him, encountering many interesting characters along the way. Overjoyed to finally find Kay in the Snow Queen's palace, Gerda must help Kay find hope again by solving a puzzle before they can escape. General admission tickets are $7 for this 40-minute production in the Black Box Theater.
