NOV 26 - DEC 4
The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen
The story of an evil mirror that turns beauty to ugly, and good to bad. The story of Gerda and Kai, best friends with an unshakeable bond. The story of the Snow Queen, indifferent to all she freezes in her path. A group of intrepid narrators bring all these and more to life in Mike Kenny(The Little Mermaid at MTC)'s adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale about people learning to do good in an often-wicked world.
Recommended for ages 9 and up.
FEB 25 – MAR 5
Young, excitable Hare wants nothing more in this world than to race his friend--the older, slower Tortoise. While Hare speeds through daily life and does everything he can to make the time pass faster, Tortoise slows down and takes her time, whether doing chores or having fun. Hare and Tortoise is a fun, fast (and slow) show for 4 to 8 year olds about friendship, the passing of time and the excitement of growing up.
Recommended for ages 4 and up.
