Piccolo Theatre Family Holiday Panto Opens Next Week

Posted by Admin On November - 7 - 2013

EVANSTON, IL – The magical and musical world of The Snow Queen opens its doors to adventure on November 15! This retelling of the beloved Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale combines the nostalgia of 80s fantasy film appeal with the magic of British Panto tradition live on stage.

Audiences of all ages have enjoyed film and cartoon versions of fantasy and fairy tale literature for decades. Labyrinth, Fairy Tale Theatre, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy have staying power because they suggest an escape from reality with the idea of “what if,” challenge beliefs and values with relatable human circumstances, and prove that in the end love can conquer all.  Though film and literature can offer the mind and body a visceral reaction in part, nothing compares to the intensity of live theatre.  Piccolo Theatre’s The Snow Queen or When Christmas Freezes Over! completes that singular experience of making the imaginary a reality onstage, allowing audiences to interact with the actors, cheer on the good guys, squirm in their seats when danger threatens , and feel relief when obstacles have passed.  Always rated “C” for comedy, the 13th annual holiday Panto at Piccolo Theatre is good fun for the soul.

The Snow Queen, or When Christmas Freezes Over! previews November 8 – November 10 Friday & Saturday at 7:30PM, and Sunday at 3PM. Opening is Friday, November 15 at 7:30PM with a free reception to follow. Performances run November 15 – December 21; all performances are Friday at 7:30PM, Saturday at 3PM & 7:30PM,and Sunday at 3PM. Ticket prices include $15 (previews only), $65 (family of 4), $25 (adults), $22 (seniors), $15 (students), $10 (Children 10 and younger). Group discounts are available for all performances.
