You might think you know the story of Snow White, but the Theater Kelowna Society has turned it on its head and is bringing the British pantomime version of the play to the stage.
“It’s a really funny storyline, there are a lot of engaging and really funny characters,” said Jerome Laroche, co-director of Snow White.
“There are so many different variations of Snow White and all of the Disney classics. But we always stick to the main core [of the story].”

That means the all-Okanagan cast put a comedic spin on the classic fairy tale. The two characters Bogwort and Stinkwort provide comic relief and interact with the audience.
“We’re a bunch of hired thugs and we’re basically the ‘hunters’ of the story,” said Riegar Marks, who plays Stinkwort.
“[We are hired] murder Snow White, reluctantly,” said Jacqueline Seneshen, who plays Bogwort. “This is very fun.”
