We were thrilled to discover the Monterey County Herald acknowledged the outstanding performance of YACster Cody Moore in the Forest Theater Guild's production of Snow White. Check out the May 29th article in The Monterey County Herald titled CRITICS CIRCLE: Moore's performance propels Forest Theatre Guild's 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs'. Performances run through June 16th (see end of article for details on how to purchase tickets): *article below courtesy of The Monterey County Herald* "CRITICS CIRCLE: Moore's performance propels Forest Theatre Guild's 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' By GABRIELLA RUBINO CRITICS CIRCLE Grab a blanket, put on a jacket, and come see Jessie Braham White's adaptation of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" at Carmel's Outdoor Forest Theater. Based on the classic Grimm fairytale, this telling was a darker version than the well-known Disney film version. It still managed to hold onto the basics, including dwarfs, a poisoned apple, and the magic mirror. The production consisted mainly of child actors, some so small they are barely able to walk, to others who appeared to be of high school age. The tree-lined, Carmel backdrop provide an incredibly suitable setting for the production. Director Alyssa White made ample use of a revolve which was divided into the production's three locales — the Throne Room, the House of the Seven Dwarfs, and the Witch's House. Of course, for any children's play, the little ones always end up stealing the show with their sweetly delivered lines. The seven dwarfs — Blick (Akasha Brown), Flick (Jayna Spitler), Glick (Jack Hart), Snick (Harrison Coleman), Plick (Josh Hart), Whick (David Roden) and Quee (Will Fulmer) — were a particular hit with the audience, especially when describing their insurmountable work and how to prepare food for dinner. The ladies in waiting were also excellent as young girls in adorationof Snow White and excited at the prospect for marriage for her. By far, the best performance came from Witch Hex, played by Cody Moore. His performance utilized all the campiness required of a high-pitched, overly forgiving witch who gave Queen Brangomar (Erin Carey) his spells to kill Snow White. He ultimately felt bad for Snow White's demise. Moore's comedic timing was impeccable and he was able to win over the audience with his dry wit. Withis shrilling voice, the delivery of hislines had to be on point in order to understand him. He accomplished this beautifully. Also worth mention is the Berthold, the Chief Huntsman, played by Daniel Ruacho. His conflicted performance as dutiful father and loyal royal servant to Snow White's deceased father made for a compelling scene in the woods. All in all, it was a great way to spend an evening, in an outdoor theater watching a classic fairytale. Bring the kids for some good family entertainment. RubinoReviews:Righteous
