The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Snow White, the mirror, and the friendly Seven Dwarfs are given a new life and voice as Repertory Philippines re-staged the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Onstage in Greenbelt 1. 

Stepping inside the theater was like seeing the world of Snow White, a princess who we know as the fairest of them all. 

It was exciting to see the theater full of kids and to see their appreciation of the play. I brought along my mom and brother with me. I was excited for the play because it is been a while since I have seen one. It's time to get cultured again! 

We came a little late (boo) and missed the opening parts. But that didn't stop us from singing along with the cast as they sing and did the yodelling. 

The cast was amazing during the press preview. They sand and danced so effortlessly that made me wish for the same talent. The two kids who played the drawfs role were amazing! Kudos to you two! The transition of the setting from the forest to little house to the evil queen's room was seamless. I don't want to spoil how fun and engaging the play is, but yes the cast made sure that the audience is also part of the show. Don't forget to bring your kids!

Bituin Escalante played the role of the Evil Queen and she's astonishing. Her voice was so powerful that it seemed like  watching a Disney movie with an evil queen voice. The queen's performance was highlighted with the "mirror". No magic was seen on stage but just pure skills and talent. 

The music and songs did touch my emotions. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs reminded us how nice it is to have real friends. The dwarfs were so adorable I seriously wanted to be friends with them (the same way I wanted to be friends with the FRIENDS cast!).

Truly, Snow White’s story is a montage of the many experiences a person can have in a lifetime — cruelty to an innocent, loss of home and family, security in newfound friends, and the triumph of good over wicked. 

“Snow White’s story shows that you can appeal to the good in everyone. You can (influence) people by being good,” Director Joy Virata shares. 

Alternating for the role of Snow White are, Christine Flores, Alana Vicente, Becca Coates, and Dani Prieto (understudy). Bituin Escalante, Ring Antonio, Pam G, and Christine Flores (understudy) are alternating for the role of the Wicked Queen Stepmother, while and the dashing Hans Eckstein, Jos Jalbuena, and Jeff Flores share the role of the handsome prince/woodsman.
