One on one with Disney on Ice’s Snow White
Princess Snow White, it is a pleasure to meet you. Thank you for letting me visit you at your cottage.
It’s very nice to meet you, too. Oh, but this isn’t my cottage. It belongs to the Dwarfs.
The Dwarfs, are they your family?
No, but I do so wish they were. They’re very sweet and kind. You see, I had to run away from my home at the castle because my stepmother, the Queen, wants to hurt me. I was very frightened and had no place to stay, but the dear little Dwarfs have welcomed me into their home.
So you live here now?
Yes, I suppose I do, but I dream that someday I’ll find my Prince again, and we’ll live happily ever after.
Do you have any hobbies, Princess?
Well, I like to bake all kinds of things like apple dumplings and plum pudding and gooseberry pie. And I have so much fun singing and dancing with the Dwarfs. They’re very talented and play all sorts of instruments.
What are some of your favourite places to visit?
I haven’t been very many places, but I do like walking through the forest with my animal friends and picking wildflowers.
Can you tell me more about this cottage?
Oh, I’d be happy to. When I first saw it, I thought it looked just like a doll’s house. But when I came inside, everything was covered with dust, and there were dirty dishes and cobwebs everywhere. The little chairs and table were so adorable, that I imagined seven little children must live here. So, I decided to clean the house and surprise them when they came home. Well, it wasn’t seven little children, it was seven little men! They were very surprised to see me, but when I explained about the Queen, they invited me to stay.
The Dwarfs do sound kind. Could you tell me about them?
Well, Bashful is shy and gentle, and Sleepy and Sneezy are funny and sweet. Then there’s Happy who loves to laugh and has such a nice singing voice. And Doc is awfully brave and smart. Now, I wasn’t so sure about Grumpy at first, but underneath all his grumbling, he has a kind heart. Oh, and I mustn’t forget Dopey. He’s the most adorable of all; so silly and dear.
This has been lovely, Princess, thank you. And I wish you very good luck.
Oh, thank you! And I wish you good luck, too. I even know a secret about wishes and wishing wells…
Make a wish into the well, that’s all you have to do. And if you hear it echoing, your wish will soon come true!
Disney On Ice Presents The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice will be taking place at the Durban ICC from 13 July to 16 July. Tickets are available through CompuTicket.
