Come play with theatre…

Ever fans of community theatre, we took in the Oswego Players’ production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Originally written by the Brothers Grimm, the story was adapted for stage by Jessie Braham White.

Under the direction of Jennifer Snow, the production tells the classic tale of an optimistic princess and the love and support of her friends – seven little men with odd little names. In this story, the dwarfs are known as Blick, Flick, Glick, Snick, Plick, Whick and Quee.

As our favourite fairy tale characters are brought to life, they are as delightful and entertaining as we remember them from the storybook; and the telling of the story is enhanced by the visually stunning sets and costumes.

If you missed this performance, be sure to catch their next production, Agatha Christie’s “Ten Little Indians”. The show will be presented on July 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 8 p.m. and on July 20 at 2 p.m. at the Frances Marion Brown Theater, located in the Civic Arts Center Building at Fort Ontario Park on East Fourth Street in Oswego, N.Y.

Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and $7 for students. For more information, tickets or to make reservations, call the Oswego Players at 315-343-5138.

The Oswego Players was founded in 1938 by Frances Marion Brown, making it one of the oldest continuously running theatre programs in the country. A testament to true community theatre, the Players attract cast and crew members from throughout Oswego County.

As Ms. Brown once stated, “(Our mission) is to bring good theatre by local casts to Oswego and its environs, and have fun doing it!”
