The Bonstelle Theatre opens an adaptation by Tyler J. Monroe of one of Hans Christian Andersen’s most popular fairytales, The Snow Queen, just in time for the holiday season. 

The Snow Queen is a tale of a young heroine’s journey to rescue a young boy named Kai from the clutches of the evil Snow Queen. The heroine, a girl named Gerda who is also Kai’s best friend, must traverse through a world filled with a number of eccentric and dangerous characters to find and free Kai from the Snow Queen’s spell. Using puppets, music and supernatural magic, The Snow Queen is a show that celebrates the ideals of childhood, while themes like devotion, bravery, and the triumph of love are explored throughout the story.

Show dates/times:  Friday 11/30 8pm, Saturday 12/1 8pm, Sunday 12/2 2pm, Thursday 12/6 10am, Friday 12/7 8pm, Saturday 12/8 8pm and Sunday 12/9 2pm.

Tickets are $12 - $15 and are available by calling the Bonstelle Theatre Box Office at (313) 577-2960, online at WSUShows.com, or by visiting the box office in the Hilberry Theatre located at 4743 Cass Avenue on the corner of Hancock.

Children get a special ticket price of only $6. This classic children’s fairytale is a holiday treat, and the Bonstelle Theatre’s production will include a preshow craft activity with cast members for children starting 45 minutes prior to curtain time. Paper roses and snowflakes will be made in the upstairs lobby and used by children in the audience to interact with the show.
