Matthias Kuchta’s highly imaginative version of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be presented Sunday, January 25, at The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg. Performances are set for 1 and 3:30 p.m. The show, recommended for youngsters age four and older and their families, is part of the Theatre’s Sampler Series.

Mirror, mirror on the wall... These words, recited daily by the Queen, start perhaps the most famous fairytale of all time. This beautiful puppet play, performed by Matthias Kuchta, follows the Brothers Grimm version of the story, bringing to life the evil queen, the lovable dwarves, the compassionate hunter, the handsome prince and, of course, the dangerously beautiful Snow White.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs offers audiences a large, living, soft, touchable picture book. Matthias Kuchta is an expert puppeteer whose performance will give adults another vision of what they’ve always considered a tale for children.

The performances feature general admission seating in the Theatre’s on-stage setting. Children will be sitting on the floor, enabling them to get a close-up view of the puppets in action.

Seating is limited, so early ticket purchasing is recommended. Tickets cost $10 each. To purchase tickets or for more information, call the Box Office, 908-725-3420, or order online at www.rvccArts.org. Subscribers’ packages are available for most Theatre series. Senior citizen, student and group discounts are also available for most performances.
