“Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a 1937 american animated film based on Snow White, a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. It was also the first full-length cel-animated feature in motion picture history, as well as the first animated feature film produced in America, the first produced in full color, the first to be produced by Walt Disney and the first in the Walt Disney Animated Classics canon”. (Information from Wikipedia)
I remember when I first saw Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on the big screen, I think I was six or seven years old, but I couldn’t get over the fact that even though it was an animated movie, the water teardrops falling in the well and making small circular effects looked so real! “How can they do that?” I asked my mom.
There is something else that never seizes to amaze me though, in fact, it inspires me: children’s imagination and their ability to transform the simple into extraordinary! They are so curious and so creative…
All children are special and have their very own talents. Ariel,(in the picture posing at her Snow White Party) stole my heart from the minute I met her at ballet lessons back in my country of origin, El Salvador.
She is an incredible dancer and gets so much into character when she performs that surprises children and adults alike. So when her mom sent me this picture of her wearing her Snow White Costume, I got so inspired that I wrote and wrote and developed our “Snow White-Theater” script party. It is awesome, and we have two versions, one for beginners and one for advanced performers like Ariel. I promise I will squeeze in a few ideas from the script in the article.
For our Theatre Party Scripts, write us a note or e-mail us. You can purchase the Script with easy to follow instructions for your party or go all the way inviting us there with a couple of character Hosts who not only direct but are part of the scenes too. We have our Snow White, Prince Charming and Magical Witches. Theatre Parties are sooo much fun and so is a make-up session and dress up!
No Snow White Party would be complete, without two things: A Mirror, mirror on the wall, saying “Who is the Fairest of them all! and a Wishing Well, like this one we rent made out of cardboard, but with a string and pale girls can either pull out their part from the script and find out what character they will play. If you are not into theatre parties, have your guests fish out of the well nice fortune wishes like the ones you can find in fortune cookies. It is also a nice item to use to pick prizes randomly.
For this party we decorate with paper flowers and lanterns. (check out pics from Alice in Wonderland Party in this blog). We can also make the forest animals out of foam. At theatre parties our super cute forest animal masks are made of fabric. (These roles are played by the smallest guests ).
I love the outdoors for this party but in case the Weather is not cooperative enough or you would rather have it inside, check out this awesome magical backdrop that you can find at digitalblasphemy.com
This beautiful backdrop, the wishing well, fake trees and forest animals, totally set the mood at an indoor party, don’t you agree?
Now, another fun game….Do you remember this scene from Snow White and the Seven dwarfs?
For this game, we recreate the cave. Kids get a chance to sing, dance and pick hidden treasures from the cave!
For treasures, ring pops, chocolate coins, rings with huge precious stones. Now when our guest-dwarfs go back home…(to their sitting places..) Ohhhh no! Princess Ariel White is gone. What to do? Where to look? Any ideas?
Now, if you have a girl that loves to perform like Ariel, (Birthday girll/star of the show) and several kids playing forest animals and
dwarfs, the best way to go is to invite the Medieval/Evil queen as a character host.
Our Host acts as the queen but also directs the kids when she grins ACTION!
You can also invite her to your party, even if it is not a theatre party, she will read the story and add funny comments from her own perspective!
Now for the cake, Check out this beautiful creation by Lineth Cakes,
we are very fortunate to work with her at our parties. She is so professional and
creative and will go along with any of your ideas and add or enhance them, all
the time. And we can get very creative at times….

Another food item that you should not leave out at your little girl’s Snow White Party is apples. Make a game where girls pick apples from a small swimming pool using their mouth only or if you want to avoid the splashes … make caramel apples.
I really hope you enjoy this party as much as I have enjoyed writing this article. Thank you Ariel and Gabi for the inspiration and for sharing your picture with us. I love you and wish you the best in your ballet carreer.
As for Hosts, we have Snow White, Prince Charming and Medieval/evil. We can also help you with decoration and planning your next Snow White Party. Check out our original version of Snow White at a party:
