Snow White Tells It Her Way June 8, 9, 15 & 16 at CVRep in Downtown Cathedral City

Forget everything you’ve ever heard or thought about Miss Happily-Ever-After Snow White. COACHELLA VALLEY REPERTORY YOUTH PROGRAMS brings her to CVRep June 8, 9, 15 and 16 to set the story straight in GREG BANKS’ hilarious, entertaining, and truth-be-told play – SNOW WHITE. Not to worry, it’s childproof and adult friendly for ages 4 and older. SNOW WHITE, portrayed by HALEY KOOYMAN, along with JOHN CORR as DWARF FOUR, tells her story her way.

These two incredibly talented actors assume all 14 roles, including the eponymous Snow White, Dwarf Four, the six other dwarves, her evil, narcissistic step-mother, the compassionate huntsman, the handsome if somewhat entitled prince, and the mirror that just can’t leave well enough alone. Super-fast and whip-smart, SNOW WHITE tickles the imagination and delights at each twist and turn. All proceeds support CVRep’s Conservatory and Community Programs. Howard Shangraw, Director of the CVRep Conservatory and Youth Programs, will direct the production. Set designer is Jimmy Cuomo, lighting designer is Moira Wilkie and lighting is by Timothy Burr. Melina Ginn is stage manager.

Performances of SNOW WHITE are Saturdays, June 8 & 15 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and Sundays, June 9 & 16 at 2 p.m. Single tickets are $5 plus fees and are on sale now and available online at, by calling (760) 296-2966, ext. 115, or at the CVRep box office located at 68510 East Palm Canyon Dr., Cathedral City.

The Toronto Star called British playwright Greg Banks’ SNOW WHITE “…sharp, smart and always entertaining ….”  Set to an original score by Victor Zupanc, the play focuses on the central character and her version of how the fairy tale all went down. The brilliance of Banks’ re-telling is how he uses it as a tool for learning as well as being irresistibly entertaining for all ages. This performative adventure and modern take on the revered fairytale demonstrates that who tells the story matters, and that there is value in listening to multiple perspectives or points view. When she finishes, Snow White feels empowered and confident in herself and in telling her story.
