to Curtain to Present Full-Length "Snow White" Musical
at MCCC's Kelsey Theatre Sept. 23-Oct. 2
Windsor, N.J. - What's the fairest show of them all? It's "Snow
White," set to a lovely musical score in the grand tradition
of old-time Broadway. Twenty Minutes to Curtain Productions presents
a full-length family musical of the Brothers Grimm classic at Mercer
County Community College's Kelsey Theatre. Performances are Fridays,
Sept. 23 and 30 at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 24 at 2 p.m. and 7:30
p.m.; Saturday, Oct. 1 at 7:30 p.m.; and Sundays, Sept. 25 and Oct.
2 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West
Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the
cast and crew follows the opening night performance on Sept. 23.
Written by the late Broadway actress, Marilyn Gerold of Bucks County,
Pa., who put numerous fairytale classics to music after retiring
from the stage, this adaptation is reminiscent of popular musicals
of the 1950s, according to director Claudia Perry. In addition to
the main characters, "everybody sings and dances - from Clara,
the bell who acts as the town crier, to a sympathetic frog who dances
a soft shoe, to the singing trees," Perry said. "The melodies
are quite catchy. Families will enjoy following the familiar story
of Snow White in this creative retelling - complete with a happy
ending, of course."

Kevin Minor, of Langhorne, Pa., as Prince John; Mary Rose Brendel,
