The Puppet Company at Glen Echo Park

Just down the bike bath from Cabin John Crossing::
Snow White & the 7 Dwarves:: Now Playing Thru June 2nd

"When Snow White meets seven vertically challenged bachelors, she discovers that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses; and that friendship and teamwork make any challenge smaller. Based on the Grimm fairytale, this production takes the Puppet Co.’s usual sideways view of the popular story, giving it timeliness and humor for adults, as well as kids."
