WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following the 2016 hit production of A Christmas Carol, the award-winning company Blessed Unrest returns to the New Ohio this holiday season with a contemporary riff on Hans Christian Andersen's The Snow Queen, tailored for the entire 21st-century family (ideal for children 7 and up). This story of a fearless young woman on a quest to save her friend from a frozen world devoid of feelings features the troupe's signature physicality, magical transformations, extravagant costumes, and modern humor. Written by Matt Opatrny, directed by Jessica Burr, and developed by Blessed Unrest in a yearlong New Victory LabWorks residency, The Snow Queen presents the title character as a metaphor for the cool allure of modern technology.
