Classic fairytale gets updated with a twist

More than 90 pupils of Whangarei Academy of Dance and Performing Arts are taking to the stage for Snow White Revisited, and Christmas Funk.

When Forum North opened in Whangarei in 1982, dance teacher Deborah Phillips staged a classical production of Snow White for the end-of-year show. Thirty years later, she's doing Snow White again, but this time with a modern twist. In the 2012 version, Snow White falls asleep to a song by the Eurythmics, and gets married to the Bruno Mars song Marry You.

Dance teacher Holly Duder-Joy said the youngest dancer taking part in the show is 3 years old, and the oldest is 28.

The show opens tonight at 7.30pm at Forum North, and there are two more performances tomorrow, at 1.30pm and 7pm.
