Snow White

The wonderful world of the Brothers Grimm is brought to life in this delightful adaptation. This familiar story has lost nothing in the way of excitement, adventure and fun. All our old friends are here - the lovely Princess, the mischievous Dwarfs, the Prince, the Huntsman, the evil Queen. But wait until you meet the hilarious palace Cat and the Enchanted Vixen.

In this version, the Magic Mirror not only talks - it walks! Shiver and shake as the scheming Queen transforms herself into various personalities like Esmeralda, the young gypsy, and a withered Crone so horrible even the Queen herself is terrified! Don't forget that poisonous apple waiting for our heroine. Laughs, chases through the forest and more than enough stage magic to light up the stage.

Delbert McClinton

Delbert McClinton proudly defies classifications. His music blends his Texas roots with roadhouse rock, juke-joint blues, Memphis soul and country. During his entire recording career, record labels have consistently tried to pigeonhole Delbert's music. But if you ask the critics about Delbert's dynamic vocals and harmonica style, you'll hear descriptions ranging from 'honky-tonk,' 'blue-eyed soul,' and 'Texas stomp' to 'country rock' and 'blues.' Delbert's music rebels against traditional categorization. Ask Delbert what kind of music he plays and he'll say, "Fun music."

Delbert was a judge for the fourth annual Independent Music Awards to support independent artists' careers. Delbert is also the feature of the musical documentary, Rocking the Boat: A Musical Conversation and Journey.

See Delbert at the Crighton on June 20, 2014 at 8 PM!
