Summary

One of the biggest box office hits in our history, The Snow Queen returns for the holidays with a magical new scenic design and the same haunting and hilarious music that charmed young and old alike. The Snow Queen takes her audience on a wild ride into the realm of myth and dream, where a talking reindeer, wooden soldiers, an enchantress, the mysterious Snow Queen, holds talking animals, wooden soldiers, witches, and lost children under her spell. This immortal story about innocence and loss belongs to the ages, and a musical adaptation by Tony Award-winning director Frank Galati and acclaimed composer Michael Smith, with design and puppets by Blair Thomas (a founder of Redmoon Theater)—is a perfect fit for the family during the holidays: romantic, melodic, and moving.
