=The story=
''[[Snow White]]'' is a German fairy tale published under the Low German title ''Sneewittchen'' by the Brothers Grimm in 1812 in the first edition of their collection ''Grimms' Fairy Tales'' (listed as "Tale 53").
The tale was often dramatized (apparently a 1912 Broadway play first gave the seven dwarfs individual names) and would later form the basis of the iconic Walt Disney animated feature film, released by RKO Radio Pictures in 1937, itself the inspiration for many subsequent versions of the tale. 
At least three pantomime versions of the story have been created performed in South Africa over the years.
