Lythgoe Family Productions has announced open auditions for "A Snow White Christmas", with Radio Disney covering the event and celebrity judges participating. The production's casting directors are searching for 14 Child Performers (2 casts) to play the 7 Dwarfs and other dancing ensemble members. Must be between the ages of 6 - 16 years. Strong dancing, great physicality/acting for interpreting the Dwarf roles, and singing is a major plus!

"A Snow White Christmas" will be starring Neil Patrick Harris as "The Magic Mirror", Marina Sirtis as "The Wicked Queen", and Lindsay Pearce as "Snow White". The play is a new and exciting version of the age old fairy tale with modern music and comical twist.

The play is being directed by Bonnie Lythgoe, a British dancer who has became a very successful producer, director, and choreographer of various theatre productions. Lythgoe produced/directed and choreographed the Christmas 2006 version of "Peter Pan" starring Henry Winkler, and "Cinderella" starring Patrick Duffy. Bonnie came to American public attention as a producer on the first three series of American Idol, and then producer and judge on the reality television series "So You Think You Can Dance".

The choreographer is Mark Ballas of "Dancing with the Stars" fame. Musical Director is Michael Orland, who worked as associate musical director on 62 episodes of "American Idol". Songs in "A Snow White Christmas" include "Born This Way" by Lady Gaga, "YMCA" by Village People, and "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.

Rehearsals on "A Snow White Christmas" begin early November, 2011 and the show opens November 29, 2011. It will run through December 18, 2011 at the El Portal Theatre in North Hollywood, CA.
