This is a past event.

Snow White 

When: Wed., April 4, 7:30 p.m. and Thu., April 5, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-$49

Y'all want a Snow White story, you have a regular buffet these days. For a camp anachronistic version, go for Mirror Mirror in movie theaters. For a medieval action-horror thing, wait a few months for Snow White and the Huntsman. For some twisty serialized commentary on fairy tales, try TV's Once Upon a Time or comics' Fables. And for a "wickedly erotic contemporary ballet," try this program choreographed by Angelin Preljocaj, which features fashions by Jean Paul Gaultier and a cast of 26 dancers performing to the symphonies of Gustav Mahler.

Why are there so many variations on this tale right now? Well, it's sort of like those old commercials for Frosted Mini-Wheats: The adult in you likes the analysis of Freudian subtext and deconstruction of sexist archetypes, but the kid in you just thinks dwarves and princesses and evil queens are cool. Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; the second production is preceded by a discussion about costume design at 6:30 p.m. with representatives from UNC and Playmakers at UNC's Historic Playmakers Theatre, 202 E. Cameron Ave. —Zack Smith
