The New Repertory Theater’s winter production, The Snow Queen, was described by the New York Times as the “A fairy-tale that rocks.”
The show will be at the Arsenal Center for the Arts’ Charles Mosesian Theater from Nov. 18 to Dec. 20.
Snow Queen is a pop/rock musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s classic tale. It is a coming-of-age adventure that follows a young woman on a journey of self-discovery in a magical, wintry landscape, according to New Rep. When her best friend Kai is put under a magic spell, Gerda must follow him to the palace of the Snow Queen.
In the play – for ages 8 and up – the audience is taken on a fun and fantastical journey, a quest as seen through the eyes and experiences of the play’s young heroine, Gerda, according to co-author and director Rick Lombardo.
“Audiences have shown us that children to seniors identify with the universal themes of Gerda and Kai’s journey in the play, and respond powerfully to the exhilarating and visceral feel of the rock score,” Lombardo said.
Gerda is played by Victoria Britt in her New Rep debut. Aimee Doherty comes back to New Rep to play the Snow Queen, and Nick Sulfaro returns to play Kai.
Artistic Director Jim Petosa hopes this New Rep production will be a holiday treat.
“It has become a New Rep tradition during the holiday season to present a play that speaks to audiences of all ages and invites all to revel in this celebratory time of year,” Petosa said.
