Live theatre is back after a four-year hiatus at Asparagus Community Theatre (ACT).

The Armstrong company is resurfacing with a new board of directors, new logo, new website and an updated social media presence.

ACT presents A Snow White Christmas, by Norm Foster and directed by Kim Sinclair with Sandy Behan, on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2, 7, 8 and 9.

“In this laugh out loud version, Snow White has had a few rough years, bitter and resentful having been ‘hurt bad’ and ‘done wrong’ by a man in her past,” said Julie Drapala, who plays White. “Snow is left trying to make ends meet for herself, her always hungry teenaged employee Max (Sawyer Giroux) and the adorable young orphans she has taken in out of the goodness of her heart…and put to work.”

With little help from a woman (Sharon Eliason) who is ineptly trying to graduate to Fairy God Mother status, and a couple of thieving yet loveable vagabonds (Randy Brogdon and Adrian Leblond), White becomes enchanted by a simple merchant, Vince Charming (Joseph Taylor), whose loud and overbearing presence causes a hilarious turn of events.

“This is a show which will delight family members of all ages,” said Drapala.

The show runs at 7:30 p.m. for each production with a 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, Dec. 2, at Centennial Hall in Armstrong.

Tickets are available online at Eventbrite.ca or in person (cash only) at the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce, or at the door.
