PuppetART Presents: The Snow Queen
Hans Christian Andersen’s bittersweet winter tale pits the warming power of love against the cold of hate. Youngsters Gerda and Kai live next door to each other in a tiny Scandinavian village. They start off carefree, but a prank by a demon results in shards of an evil mirror lodged firmly in Kai’s eyes. Soon, the glass splinters cause ill will in the little boy, leading him to mock Gerda’s grandmother and spurn his longtime friend. Within a year, Kai is abducted by the beautiful yet wicked Snow Queen, who thrives from his newfound callousness. Gerda embarks on a quest to save her erstwhile playmate, braving the elements to rekindle Kai’s extinguished inner flame of kindness.
The fable has been adapted countless times through storybooks, films, and musicals, and now comes to the stage in a lavish, puppet-filled production. For PuppetART’s masters, this Snow Queen is a product of passion—a project that took over three years to complete. That care has resulted in majestic sets and intricate, hand-made puppets. The breathtaking creations include a life-sized Snow Queen, who towers over the stage with a stern face and gigantic hands, and trees, houses, and castles that uproot themselves to dance about on two feet. Enhanced by special effects and musical numbers, PuppetART’s The Snow Queen carries on a rich tradition of family entertainment and storytelling.
