A cast and crew of 55 students and two brave directors gave two performances of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at Nebraska City High School Aug. 4.  The students from kindergarten through 12th grade auditioned Monday morning July 30 and spent the week rehearsing daily for the show.
Missoula Children’s Theatre has been coming to Nebraska City for over 20 years and has continued thanks to the Nebraska City Fine Arts Committee, the Nelson Family Foundation, and the Nebraska Arts Council.
Saturday, parents and friends enjoyed watching a great performance of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” with characters Snow White, Mirror, King, Queen, Phineas, Foxy, Fernando, Dwarfs, Henchmen, Black Forest Creatures, Forest Animals, and Bats.
Theresa Gygi played Snow White; Katie Frey was the evil (very loud) queen.  The mirror was played by Hannah Knox, king by Carter Guatney, Phineas by Annie Hackworth, Foxy by Madison Krueger, and Fernando by Marcus Bartman.
The play was performed with song, group lines, choreography, and individual lines.  It was a great opportunity for the students to play a part in a professional production complete with a set, costumes, and musical accompaniment.
The Nebraska City Fine Arts Committee would like to thank accompanist Tammy Patsch, Lighting Technician Oliver Borchers-Williams, Videographer Carla Roettger, Directors Allie Nichols and Gustavo Brito.  Additionally, the Whispering Pines Bed and Breakfast and Best Western Inn housed the tour directors through the week, Valentino’s made arrangements for the final cast party, and the Nebraska City Public Schools were very accommodating to the production throughout the week.  The funding is made possible by the Nebraska Arts Council and the Nelson Family Foundation.
