The queen strikes again in The Snow Queen, which hits the stage select dates Dec. 3, 2016-Jan. 29, 2017. It’s a puppet show presented by PuppetART Theater in Detroit and based on the original story by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
First introduced by PuppetART in 2011, the show follows the story of Gerda and her quest to find her friend Kai. When Gerda learns about The Snow Queen kidnapping her friend Kai, she sets on a quest to reunite with her friend. On her voyage, she meets flowers, friends, villains – and one dangerous crow. But she cannot sneak away from The Snow Queen’s icy world.
Watch Gerda as she tries everything she can to find Kai. Will she be able to locate her friend? Or will the Snow Queen stop her? Learn the true meaning of friendship and keeping that bond through any obstacle during this live show.
The musical includes techniques and special effects like rod and hand puppets, marionettes, projections and costumes. It also features original music by Maria Miheyenko.
