PETERBOROUGH - The classic tale of Snow White, in a contemporary reworking that features a very sassy mirror, a dancing chicken and a not-so-much-evil-but-misunderstood witch, takes center stage this summer at The Peterborough Players.The Players' Second Company of interns and apprentices unveils the production at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 29, at the Hadley Road theater.

Adapted by Marjorie Sokoloff from the beloved children's tale, 'Snow White' will include nine more performances on July 5-6, 12-13, 17, 19, 20 and 26-27.Tickets are $8 for children and $10 for adults. For details, call 924-7585 or log onto PeterboroughPlayers.org.

In Sokoloff's tale, there isn't an evil, spiteful witch, and the picture-perfect princess of the original tale is first glimpsed as a frightened, young woman who finds herself alone.Still, there is a prince and a happy ending.
