“We’re going to go up in the woods and find some characters like Snow White, Cinderella and Little Red Riding hood,” breathed Natalie in the one second she sat still before scampering off with her friends.

Led by high school chaperones, the kindergarten classmates weaved their way through the woods behind the Pereira home, looking for Hansel’s missing Gretel or Snow White’s Seven Dwarfs.

“I think this is a really cool idea,” said Maize Converse, who played Snow White. “I love working with the kids.

“If I was that young, I would have loved to do this,” agreed sophomore Benjamin Gross, who played Sir Lancelot.

Pereira said she hopes to make this an annual event at her home.

“Wouldn’t it make a great community event,” she asked.
