EVANSTON, IL – Piccolo Theatre Ensemble’s 13th Annual Holiday Panto for kids and family previews November 8, and this year Piccolo dazzles the senses and sheds new light on an old tale by Hans Christian Andersen.

Friendship reflects love and trust, but rejection threatens when the mirror breaks… Christmas is trapped in ice when best friends Kai and Gerda are separated by the enchanted broken mirror of the beautiful but fierce Snow Queen. With the help of her colorful comrades Erick, Derick, and the Dame, the shy Gerda must find the hero within as she quests across wintry Lapland to save the imprisoned Kai, facing trolls, conniving snowflakes, and other magical obstacles along the way. Featuring exciting new music, dancing, and memorable characters, this holiday world premiere will warm your heart, thaw your toes, and make you laugh!

The Snow Queen, or When Christmas Freezes Over! is written by Jessica Puller**, with music and lyrics by Rich Maisel, directed by Nicole Keating, and choreographed by Joshua D. Allard** and Vanessa Hughes**.  Cast includes Joshua D. Allard**, Vanessa Hughes**, Kurt Proepper**, and Nathan Thompson**; with Josh Ballard, Andy Huttel, Claire Hart, Jillian Weingart, Shane Hill, Caitlin Aase, Sarah Mayhan, Shari Mocheit, and Steve Yandell.
