The Tale of Snow White

When: Sat., Aug. 11, 7 p.m. and Sun., Aug. 12, 3 p.m. 2012

This weekend, the Mt. Pleasant Performing Arts Company presents its second rendition of The Tale of Snow White — think Disney but with a twist. “It was such a popular thing that we’re doing it again,” says Larisa Dahabi, the company’s artistic director. A homegrown, made-from-scratch take on the childhood favorite, The Tale of Snow White features the 30-member children’s company. Dahabi, who choreographed the performance around the animated movie, also crafted the costumes and created the performance’s soundtrack. “Every year we try to focus on teaching kids more about classical ballet,” she says, “but for the general public that doesn’t know classical ballet, I wanted to pick something that would be more familiar.”
