Snow White's vain stepmother, the queen, orders Lord Pettifogg to kill Snow White in the forest because the magic mirror says she is the fairest in the land. Instead, he warns Snow White to run away, but the queen discovers Pettifogg's deception. Disguised as an old woman selling apples, she locates Snow White at the cottage of dwarfs and persuades her to bite a poisoned apple, causing her to fall into a deep sleep. The prince awakens her with a kiss and proves to be her old friend, Jollo the Jester, who was enchanted by the queen and forced to speak only in rhyme. Two sets. Suitable for touring. Approximate running time: 50 minutes.
