Mirror Mirror

A new version of the classic fairy tale Snow White

For Children and Families

When Snow White is offered a juicy red apple, by a kind old lady, she is sorely tempted. On the other hand, how can she be sure it’s not poisoned? She’s been nearly poisoned twice this week already and it’s not pleasant.

Join Snow White at her wedding, and the whole story: magic mirror, wicked stepmother, seven dwarfs and all, will be revealed.

Mirror Mirror is a mischievous take on the ever-popular Snow White, a tale cherished by generations of children. Red Earth’s new version combines lovable puppets, spirited storytelling and mesmerising sign language.

Theatre made for young and old … because imagination is ageless
