Join us for a brand new collaboration between Performing Arts & the School of Dance as the Lawrence Arts Center revives the history and inspiring story of the Snow Queen through dance, song, and live orchestration. Based on the same Hans Christian Andersen story that inspired the hit Disney movie, Frozen, the story centers on the struggle between good and evil as taken on by young heroine, Gerda. Weaving together dramatic and comic scenes and dances performed by an 11-piece orchestra, Gerda embarks on a quest to save her playmate, braving sorceresses, robbers, and the Snow Queen in order to rekindle Kai’s inner flame of kindness. The production will feature a cast of over 100 actors, dancers, and singers of all ages.
