Messiah University Department of Theatre and Dance presents

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: as performed by TJ Barker’s Troupe of Theatricals
Written by Ernie Nolan
Directed by Daniel Inouye

Professor TJ Barker and his troupe of traveling theatricals have just arrived at the theatre to begin a performance of their spectacular production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when they realize something is amiss. Not only has the orchestra not arrived, but also five of the hilarious O'Hanlon brothers have been stricken with food poisoning. Now only two actors are left to play the dwarfs! Can Professor Barker rally his troupe and prove that the show can go on? Follow their madcap theatrical adventure as they take turns acting, puppeteering, and becoming the orchestra while performing one of the most beloved fairy tales of all time. Through ingenuity and will power, they prove in the end that anything can happen once upon a time.

Climenhaga Building, Poorman Black Box Theater
