There were two different sets of dwarf masks for the show. The original set was made out of foam, at the director's request. The second set, which was much more comfortable for the actors, was made out of a special cloth and covered with terricloth. See more »
Snow White Live is a memorable piece of theater and film!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I first saw Snow White Live as a little girl, watching off the Disney Channel during the "old school" days of Disney. I absolutely fell in love with it. My father recorded it off TV so I could watch it over and over again. Thank god I didn't wear it out because I am almost 21 years old and I still own that same tape. I think it is a perfect telling of the original Disney classic that came to life on the Broadway stage. I loved this presentation of it and would rather watch this than the cartoon! Mary Jo Salerno is amazing. Her voice is absolutely stunning and she is beautiful and enchanting as the innocent and wide eyed Snow White who dreams of her Prince, played handsomely by Richard Bowne. They have a lovely chemistry together, even though they are only in two scenes together. Anne Francine is wonderful as the Wicked Queen and Charles Hall is brilliant as the Witch(he gave me nightmares as a child because of his portrayal, but watching it today he is incredible to watch and he is one of my favorite parts to watch now!!). The Seven Dwarfs are all hilarious, esp. Dopey!! They all have a great comedic presence and worked wonderfully together. Favorite scenes are definitely the Wishing scene(when Snow White first meets the Prince), any scene with the Dopey!!, the transformation of the Queen to the Witch(BRILLIANT!!), the chase scene(another brilliant staging!) and the wedding finale, which just ends the show on a happy level. I can't tell you enough how much joy this show has been for me all this years. The staging, costumes, set, music, cast, everything about this is SO great!!! I love it more and more every time I watch it.It is a great time to sit back and watch a wonderful, cute, fun night of theater. It is def. something I hope to share with my future daughter for her to experience and enjoy just as much as me! If you have the opportunity to find this great show(heard it is pretty impossible to find nowadays..)take the chance because it is AMAZING!!!
