The Filament Theatre Ensemble is excited to present The Snow Queen as the first show of our 2014 winter season, opening Friday, January 17 at 7:30pm. This original production of Tyler Monroe’s new adaptation of the classic Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, first produced by American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is directed by A.R.T. Resident Director Allegra Libonati and features Filament’s 2014 Acting Company members Christian Libonati, Lindsey Dorcus, Mara Dale, Andrew Marchetti, and Molly Bunder with guest artists Ryan Westwood and Grace DeSant.
The Snow Queen tells the story of young Gerda and her best friend Kai. When Kai is lured to the wicked Snow Queen’s palace, Gerda embarks on an unexpected quest to the ends of the world to save him. This story of courage and friendship across the wintery wonders of the North Pole and beyond will warm your heart with music, puppetry, and lots of theatrical magic.
The Snow Queen is appropriate for all ages. Come celebrate the winter season (while also getting out of the cold!) with Filament and The Snow Queen!
