Anthony Marino, Stage Right’s artistic director, has big plans for “Snow White the Musical” that don’t end at the Palace Theatre. He’s hoping to take this production all the way to New York City. —or at least to have it published so other groups can perform the show.
Whatever happens after this weekend, he says “the other creators and I are committed to seeing that this show has a life after this initial production. This is definitely a debut performance of a show that will be seen again.” Marino and his creative partners have worked to reveal more about “the inner lives” of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs than other versions of the story based on the German fairytale by the Brothers Grimm.
“The score by David Mahokey (of Connellsville) and Greg Kerestan (of Greensburg) is really a tremendous work of art,” Marino says. “It not only tells the story but does so with songs you’ll swear were from existing Broadway hits.”
Cast in the title role is Ellen Noble of Greensburg, a graduate of Stage Right, Greensburg Salem High School and Point Park University, who now lives and works as an actor in New York City. Marino says there wasn’t any doubt that Noble was the right choice to portray Snow White.
