‘Snow White’ cast to greet youngsters

JACKSON – Children hoping to rub elbows with Disney royalty can save their wishes on a star and attend a very special meet and greet event prior to matinee performances of “Snow White” at Jackson Memorial High School, Don Connor Boulevard.

Students portraying Snow White, Prince Charming and other characters will mingle with families and their children from noon until show time at 2 p.m. on Oct. 17-18.

“Our student actors love [the meet and greets],” director Jaclyn Kerrigan said. “[The students] love the looks on little faces when they come out and meet them in character.”

For nearly two hours each day, children will be invited to partake in arts and crafts, play games and meet some of their favorite characters before watching them perform “Snow White” on the high school stage.

“The meet and greet events are so nice because they give the children a chance to interact with their favorite characters, which really brings the show to life for them,” Kerrigan said.

This year’s fall production, according to Kerrigan, is the 1979 adaptation of the “Snow White” story into an assembly length children’s play by J. Michael Straczynski.

“It’s a little bit of Disney here in Jackson,” school district spokeswoman Allison Erwin said.

“Snow White” will be performed at Jackson Memorial High School at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Oct. 17 and at 2 p.m. Oct. 18.

Special tickets for the meet and greet sessions are $20 per child and $5 per accompanying adult. Tickets for the special event must be preordered by Oct. 6 via the Jackson Memorial High School website.

Admission to the show is included with the meet and greets tickets.

Tickets for the play only are available for $10 and can be purchased at the door.
