Extracts from this document...


Drama coursework I am going to be comparing and contrasting Snow White with the play Iron Hans (from Grimm tales) which was a successful school production. We rehearsed it from October till November which was when we performed the play to a real outside audience. My contribution to the production of Iron Hans was as a King but also I acted as a huntsman too.

As the King I had to speak slightly more posh take up more of a royal stance also I had to speak with more authority. I feel I mastered these skills and it was important for me to have done so as my role was quite crucial in the play. In comparing these two I would say I wouldn't have thought they would have as much in common at first glance, although there were a lot of similarities there were also a lot of differences too.
