Modern twist to classic fairy tale

SNOW White and the Seven Dwarves was bought to life last weekend at the South Holland Centre, Spalding by the Hurst Children’s Theatre Group, Bourne writes LIZ MCMURRAY.

The cast aged from 4-16, directed by Bryony Hurst were a joy to watch acting out the classic fairytale with a few added extras, an eighth dwarf called Grotty and a Prince called Kermit. The script, written specifically for the children by the director’s father, Mike Hurst, showcased their talents brilliantly and was enjoyed by all.

There was plenty of audience participation and all actors/actresses were confident in the delivery of their lines and actions.

The National Elf Service were described as “cheeky fairies” by my daughter who was kept entertained throughout watching the girls and boys dancing, singing and enjoying themselves on the stage.

The audience was packed with proud parents, grandparents and friends and quite deservedly so, every child had a smile on their face and looked as if they thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

The Hurst Theatre Children’s Group holds classes on Saturday mornings at the Salvation Army Hall, Bourne, visit www.hctgb.co.uk or call Bryony on 01476 550804 for more details.
