catherine mcguinness, elena johnson and tom burvill "snow white: the story behind the tale"
ABOUT THE PRODUCTION ‘Snow White; the Real Story Behind the Tale’ is a telling of the classic fairy-tale told by three average actors who continuously come across obstacles in trying to perform this show. From dodgy rehearsals to disagreements on stage, this show immitates everything that can go wrong with live theatre. This show also explores your typical stereotypes of the theatre; the actor who thinks they can act from the actor who thinks they can direct to the actor who has no clue what is going on. This show is bound to entertain actors and non-actors alike.
