Media Theatre stages 'The Snow Queen'

The Snow Queen (Caileigh Crane) kidnaps a young boy (Zachary Amos) with the help of her Sprites in The Media Theatre's "The Snow Queen."

"The Snow Queen" is the perfect winter tale for children ages 4 and up, and it's on The Media Theatre stage Sundays at noon through March 3.

In this new adaptation of Hans Christian Anderson's story, a young boy is tricked by the evil queen into joining her at her Ice Palace so she can claim him as her own. With the help of his friend plus a humorous raven and reindeer, will he be able to escape the frozen nightmare of "The Snow Queen"?

Media's Patrick D'Amato is the composer of new songs such as "Bringin' Beauty Back," "Seeing For the First Time" and "We Love Snow". The Media Theatre's Roger Ricker wrote the lyrics and script.

Students from The Media Theatre's New School and acting classes portray the roles in the show, from Villagers to Evil Sprites who work for the Snow Queen.

The show is 45 minutes in length. Following the performance, children from the audience will be invited on to the stage to dance with The Reindeer and the cast as they sing "Bringin' Beauty Back."
