Young performers from Penrith will breathe new life into Snow White when they dance in an innovative production.

With a cast of dancers aged between seven and 21 years old from Penrith-based PAWS Dance Studios, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarves’ promises to captivate children of all ages with an exciting twist on a classic tale.

It will be playing at Penrith Panthers on Monday, April 14 with prizes available for the audience members who are best dressed as Snow White and the Prince.

The show integrates the beloved story of Snow White with amazing music and dancing, with kids sure to be mesmerized by the beautiful costumes and the grandeur of the production.

The soundtrack features a mix of well-known songs from the Disney version of Snow White along with more contemporary music.

Along with the talented young dancers from PAWS, ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarves’ also stars graduates from the Australian Institute of Music with Katrina Vigh and Tom Gustard singing, and Levi Burrows narrating.

Show producer Rosemary Schofield described the production as being beautiful and colourful, and said it would entertain children.

“We want children to see and hear classic narratives mixed with a contemporary dance production,” she said.

Ms Schofield has produced numerous mini musicals for children, which have received positive reviews, and said that the shows encouraged young people to get involved with performing arts.

“It’s taking children’s entertainment to a new level of excellence… it increases the number of children wanting to learn singing and dancing.”

‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarves’ will be held at Penrith Panthers on Monday, April 14 at 11am. Tickets are $15. For bookings or more information, call 132 849 or visit
