A French/English pantomime-style play, based on Snow White. Written by Jon Meier. Lots of humour and great fun. Set against a background of 7 reporters covering a news story of trapped miners. Of course it ends happily! Most of the dialogue is in English but there's plenty of French, repeated and reinforced visually. Suitable for ages 8-14. Duration around 30 mins. 17 in the cast (scope for flexibility, sharing and doubling of roles). Minimum 17, max 22 Others can be used for sound, props, poster and programme design etc Can be worked on in 1 day (with scripts) – intensive work with a scripted performance at the end of the day. Show in assembly or at a languages celebration event or just have fun reading it through. Ideal for a language/ drama festival competition. It could fill a few weeks of lunchtime and after school French clubs. Sixth-formers could also help out. Language is visual and contextualised.
