Snow White and the Old Hag

feeding Snow White the bad apple
My daughter’s theatre camp, Middlesex County College Theater Camp, put on Snow White and the Seventy Dwarves last week. My daughter had the great privilege of being picked for the character role of the old hag, the old woman who is really the wicked witch and tries to kill Snow White with a poisoned apple.

Here she is smiling at the end of the first show – I confess, my focus of watching the show was – when does the old hag enter? When does she do her evil cackles? I had a grand time watching her. As a child, I loved acting as well. I love that my daughter has this grand opportunity through camp.

This was a dramatic scene – here the Woodsman is about to kill Snow White, but of course, he does not. He brings the evil queen the heart of a pig. Do you think this will fool the wicked queen?

Trick this wicked queen into believing the heart of a pig is the heart of Snow White? She is not tricked. She sets out to kill Snow White as an old hag.

In this scene Snow White greets the prince. I’m not really sure what those two guys on the right are doing.

I took lots of photos of my dear daughter the old hag – I was so thrilled by her portrayal of the character. It was a great show, and one we will remember for many years to come.

What fun and how great her make-up and costume are...really great and you can see how much fun she was having...great job...Michelle

Leora says

She complained about how itchy the makeup was ... the perils of being an actress, especially a character role like the hag.

Shiju Sugunan says

The last picture is captured so well. Your daughter seems to have good acting skills.

Leora says

Thanks for pointing out that specific photo!

sylviakirk says

Isn't it fun to watch our children perform!!! I love your captures for the day and your daughter does indeed seem to have wonderful acting skills! Great post for the day! Thanks for sharing, Leora! Have a great week!

Wow. I finally cracked the code of how to enter your blog site. I am a slooooow learner these days.
Your daughter looks lovely as ever. No old hag costume can hide her vivid beauty.
Theatre and acting are good for children as well as for adults. We have two theatre groups for children, but the one for seniors is closed down.
I guess it was too much work to run it.
I like the way American children all go to different camps during the summer. It must be so inspirational to explore ones hobbies and interests these ways.

Leora says

It is a lot of work to run a theater group - I tried it for a short time, but we didn't get very far.

Yes, one of the best parts of summer is getting your children to try something new or at least something they can't do in the school year. My daughter loves theater!

Indrani says

Memorable moments indeed.

Magical Mystical Teacher says

When my daughter was an infant, wrapped in her little sleeper for the night, I called her "Hag in a Bag." But she never had the opportunity to act the way your daughter did!

Leora says

Hag in a bag is a great name!

Rajesh says

Very nicely done.

Matkatar says

Nice story! I would have also been very proud of my daughter! Kids are wonderful :)

Robin from Israel says

She makes a wonderful hag - what a fun opportunity for her!

Maria @ LSS says

Looks like a very entertaining play. Happy RT2!

Mine's here.

Mrs. S. says

Looks like fun! May you continue to have much nachat from her and her brothers!

dianne says

what a fabulous costume!
and yet her smile shines through
I think being the evil parts are the most fun
perhaps we'll see her on Broadway one day :)

EG Wow says

Great photos, Leora. I cannot believe you cute daughter has turned into a hag, though. :)) I imagine even the non-hag parents thought she did a fantastic job.

Ralph says

She is not really a hag - but the itchy makeup makes her appear as one. Cool! I love the theater camp, our two really enjoyed the acting lessons and acting themseves - their first one was in the chorus of high-school and older theater group performing Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. An experience in 1999 that they still remember. The players here are cute and have taken to acting. Nice!

Hannah says

She seems to have enjoyed herself. The costume is great and she looks quite convincing.

chubskulit says

It must be fun to watch the show!

Would you come and comment on my Ruby Tuesday post? Thanks!

Jim says

She is a very pretty girl 'old hag,' Leora. I love to watch the plays put on by the youth. I am thinkng this one went over really well because the kids all have liked the story for most of their years.

Our granddaughter was 'Earnest' in "The Importance of Being Earnest." She is a freshman but her school is in London, U.K, so we could only watch snitches of it that our daughter put on YouTube.

Nice to visit with here again, Jim's Ruby Tuesday 2 .

genie says

Leora....Your pictures bring back wonderful memories of the plays my children were in. The pictures turned out so well. I know you were so proud of your daughter. She had a fun part to play. genie

Jewaicious says

What an actress, her facial expressions radiate immensely. Thank you for sharing your precious daughter's moment with us.
