The White Snake
The White Snake is a fanciful play inspired by the ancient Chinese legend of a powerful snake spirit who, along with her companion Green Snake spirit, transforms into a human. The spirits have longed to experience the mortal world and travel down to earth walk among them. The White Snake meets a humble scholar, Xu Xian, and the two fall in love instantly. They marry and along with Greenie, they open a miraculous pharmacy where the members of the community come to be healed by their magical powers. The jealous monk, Fa Hai, notices and is furious about the marriage of a spirit and a human. He plots to expose the snake spirits and send them back up to the world where they belong, attempting to crush the pure love of White Snake and Xu Xian. This lively and entertaining play is filled with music, puppetry, love, spectacle, and creative theatrical conventions. Suitable for ages 6 and up.
The White Snake will be presented in the Agnes Jeffery Shedd Theater, Thursday, March 8 @ 7:30pm; Friday, March 9 @ 8:00pm; Saturday, March 10 @ 2:00pm.
