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. Ifonly 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 little daughter 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 kingdevastated 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 castleto the Seven Jewel Mountains,
You are the fairest one of all.

Narrator:
And so the Queen knew for certain that no one in the world was more beautiful than she. And year after year the mirror would say:
Mirror:
In all the land, my Queen,
you are the fairest one of all.
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 White is 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. Whenevershe 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 no peace.
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 thatshe 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 kingdom!
Queen:
Silence! If you do not obey my command, you shall die.
Huntsman:
I will obey, your Majesty.
Narrator:
The very next day, the huntsman took Snow White deep into the forest. Theunsuspecting girl wandered into a clearing where she sang a delicate song while picking flowers. The huntsman stepped behind a tree and waited until Snow White turned her back to him. Then, raising an arrow to his bow and pulling it back to his open eye, he peered at the princess with as heavy a heart as he had ever felt. Many moments passed as his arm trembled. He could hold it no longer. With aheart-wrenching shout he shot the arrow. It streaked through the air on its deadly flight and slammed loudly into a tree. Snow White cringed in terror. The huntsman had missed.

Huntsman:
Go, my child! You must run away and never return. The Queen wants you dead, but I cannot do it. Go!
Narrator:
Snow White ran into the forest. The huntsman killed a wild pig and cut out its heart. Hetook it back to the Queen and made her believe it was the heart of Snow White. That night, the huntsman slipped out of the kingdom to hide in the forest never to return.
Meanwhile, Snow White was alone in the great forest as a storm filled the night sky with a howling wind. She was terribly afraid. She climbed over stones and crawled through thorns that slashed like the claws of terrible beasts....
