This is possibly the greatest fairy tale of them all from the Brothers Grimm. In this full 30-minute production you will hear a cast of characters, completely original orchestral music, songs, and fantastic sound effects. We tell the story in a way that is unlike any you have heard before. When we made this audio story we worked very hard for months to get it right. We made it as carefully as wewould make a film. The entire production is cinematic in its scope and we think it is the most exciting story we have ever done. So turn off every distraction, dim the lights, and enjoy thirty minutes of incredible adventure.

The Audio Script
Narrator:
Once upon a time in winter, when the snowflakes were falling like feathers from heaven, a beautiful Queen sat sewing at her window,which had a frame of black ebony wood. As she sewed, she looked up at the snow and pricked her finger with the needle. Three ruby red drops of blood fell into the soft white snow.
Snow White's Mother:
Oh, what a lovely sight. If only I had a child with skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hear black as ebony wood.
Narrator:
Soon afterward, the gentle Queen gave birth to a littledaughter who was as white as snow, as red as blood, and as black as ebony wood. She was called Snow White. But alas, shortly after the little one arrived, the Queen became ill. She could not get better and soon she died, leaving the king devastated and little Snow White without a mother.
A year passed and the King took for himself a new wife. The new Queen was the most beautiful woman in all the land,and very proud of her beauty. She had a mirror, which she stood in front of every morning.
Queen:
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who in this land is the fairest one of all?
Mirror:
In all the land, my Queen,
From this castle to the Seven Jewel Mountains,
You are the fairest one of all.
Narrator:

Mirror:
In all the land, my Queen,

Narrator:
Then, Snow White had her seventh birthday and the Queen stood before the mirror once more.
Queen:
Mirror, mirror, on the wall,
Who in this land is the fairest one of all?
Mirror:
You, my Queen, are fair; it is true,
From this castle to the Seven Jewel Mountains.
But Little Snow Whiteis now
A thousand times fairer than you.
Queen:
What!? My own step-daughter? Fairer than I? Curses! I hate her! For she is more beautiful than I.
Narrator:
The Queen became pale with envy. Whenever she looked at Snow White, she hated her and wondered if she would ever again be the most beautiful in all the land. This turned her heart cold and barren. For ten years her jealousy gave her nopeace.
Finally on the eve of Snow White’s eighteenth birthday, she summoned a huntsman.
Queen:
Take Snow White into the forest. Find a lonely spot, and shoot an arrow through her heart. As proof that she is dead bring the heart back to me.
Huntsman:
But your Majesty!
Queen:
As proof that she is dead, bring her heart back to me!
Huntsman:
But Snow White is the beloved jewel of all the...
