Snow White

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a musical with music by Frank Churchill (from the movie) and Jay Blackton, lyrics by Larry Morey (from the movie) and Joe Cook, book by Joe Cook, based on the 1937 animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
The Grimm fairy tale gets a Technicolor treatment in Disney’s first animated feature. Jealous of Snow White’s beauty, the wicked queen orders the murder of her innocent stepdaughter, but later discovers that Snow White is still alive and hiding in a cottage with seven friendly little miners. Disguising herself as a hag, the queen brings a poisoned apple to Snow White, who falls into a death-like sleep that can be broken only by a kiss from the prince.
The stage adaptation was originally created at The Muny in St. Louis in 1969 and was repeated there in 1972. After that, a production opened at the Radio City Music Hall on October 18, 1979 and closed on November 18, 1979 after 38 performances so Radio City could put on the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. Snow White re-opened on January 11, 1980, and closed after 68 performances on March 9, 1980, a total of 106 performances. A video recording of one of the shows was briefly available on VHS and Betamax from Walt Disney Home Video in 1981.
