The Snow Queen
A Brand New Marionette Show!
Eulenspiegel's adaptation of this beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale uses delightfully crafted miniature Bohemian marionettes that interact on the pages of two extra-large pop-up storybooks. The story follows Gerda as she travels to the ends of the earth to save her best friend, Kai, from the Snow Queen. Along her way she meets a host of eccentric characters from a naughty little robber girl to a magical flower lady to a talking crow. The cast also includes a flamboyant storyteller who relates to the audience as well as the puppets. A feast for the eyes and the heart!
This show was developed with the support of a grant from the Puppeteers of America Endowment Fund.Curriculum Connections:
- Character Counts (esp. Responsibility, Trustworthiness, and Caring)
- Folk and Fairy Tales
- Victorian Literature
- Girl Power (Feminist Studies)
