I love to go to the theater, especially around the holidays. It just helps get everyone into the spirit of Christmas! What better way to kick off this holiday season than with a live performance of The Snow Queen at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati? Starting Friday December 5th and running through Sunday December 13th, you can catch a performance at the Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati. There are a total of six performances for The Snow Queen, listed at the end of this post.
Check out what The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati has to say about the show:
The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati continues its 90th MainStage Season celebration with THE SNOW QUEEN, directed by Jay Goodlett. Music by Steve Goers, book and lyrics by Alyn Cardarelli.
Embrace the season with this chilling show, based on the original frozen fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson. In this wintry tale, a prince and princess find themselves torn apart by an ill-advised wish that the Snow Queen must grant during the Winter Solstice. Come see Prince Kai, Princess Gerda and her comrades as they enter a world of the unknown to reunite with each other once again.
The story has been adapted by Chicago playwright Alyn Cardarelli, along with his Cincinnati writing partner Steve Goers. Their collaborations on musicals for children include world premiere adaptations of Where the Wild Things Are, Stellaluna, and How I Became a Pirate. Productions of THE SNOW QUEEN were featured twice in the history of The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati — once in 1965 performed at the Emery Theatre and once in 1975 performed at the Taft Theatre. THE SNOW QUEEN is ideal for family with children ages 4+.
Public performances of the show are:
- Friday December 5, 7:30pm
- Saturday December 6, 2:00pm and 5:00pm
- Sunday, December 7, 2:00pm
- Saturday December 13, 2:00pm and 5:00pm
Performances are at the Taft Theatre, located at 5th and Sycamore Streets in Downtown Cincinnati. Tickets range in price from $7-$25 and may be purchased on line at www.thechildrenstheatre.com
